P.S. Do you know what the similarity is between American beer and making love in a canoe?

Hi ST,
You may be thinking of Japan where they round up dolphins and slaughter them on a regular basis because the fisher-folk reckon the dolphins eat all the fish in their fishery zone... The "event" makes it to TV every so often. - A documentary has recently been completed and shows the murderous event in all its inhumane gory detail... http://thecovemovie.info/ and many more links such as http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4OPFhYbRiE and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1M9xF...ture=endscreen

To answer the original question, one has been sighted drifting towards Vancouver Island. 130'-150' foot fishing boat. There were pics in the paper recently.

"We find your American beer like making love in a canoe. It's ******* close to water."


















You made me look it up... grumble grumble piss and moan......
Though taking another sip of Sam Adams (one of my default beers), I do take some umbrage with the comment.

Can they do that? Are they going to pay for it, it must have an owner.

Did they defuel/decontaminate it?
You'd think it would have scrap value to tow it in.

They did not de fuel it and it sank in 9000 feet 300 miles off Vancouver. They said there has been some sheening but they will handle it !!!!.

It took them 5 hours to sink it firing high powered cannons at it and it was'nt even firing back. Frightening stuff that Canadian coast guard.

Good job it wasnt armed and some little old Japanese guy still on board 0r the consequences could have been very different.
