"Probing question: Why do whales beach themselves?"

Whales are the largest marine mammals in the world — the smallest species weigh in at several tons. When whales beach themselves, they can die simply from the crushing weight of their own bodies or from overheating due to their blubber, which is needed for insulation in cold ocean waters. What causes these often fatal incidents?
Bad judgement, obviously. Despite our animal rights crew telling us how smart whales are...the simple fact of the matters is...well...not so much.

Or...National Geographic provides a new theory. Not really...they just point out the evidence and I provide the theory.

Forty-seven million years ago primitive whales gave birth on land, according to a study published this week that analyzes the fossil of a pregnant whale found in the Pakistani desert.


Let's ask the experts...

"Excuse me...Ms. O'Donnell...I have a question!"
