Everything you always wanted to know about humpback whales and sex. That's right. Sex.
Now that I have your attention, I will tell you how whales have sex. Whale sex organs are internal. Well, sort of internal. The male has uh...parts but there's not a lot of drag if you know what I mean. The female has a hole similar to an "innie" belly-button. Basically, the male whale gets frisky and his um....parts....become a little more defined and he "joins" with the female. Got that? I hope so. That was really embarrassing. There will be a quiz later.
But wait. There's more.
They swim around on top of each other. What fun! Just like the dolphins. Apparently, dolphins enjoy sex about as much as we do. They do it all day so now you know why they're smiling all the time. I know a lot of you (primarily you guys) are starting to think about why you can't do it all day and I'm not talking about taking a little pill to keep things up (pun intended). I guess if all we had to do all day was swim around looking for food while playing in the water, we'd have much more time for it.
Of course this is what the dolphins want us to think. The real story is that they have already achieved world domination. We just don't know it yet.
Hubby and I returned Saturday morning from warm Maui at the rude hour of 4:30AM. This was so very, very wrong as it was 36 degrees and windy. Hubby was glad to see his large bag on the carousel as it contained his leather jacket. I started sneezing at the airport and at home and I finally told Hubby that we need to move there as I wasn't sneezing in Maui.
We discussed what would need to happen. We would have to sell all of our assets so we can work 3 jobs and live in a dumpy apartment. I made it clear that my remaining kidney was not for sale and that goes for all my other organs and don't think I could make much selling myself on the streets. Besides, I think THAT is illegal and although jail may provide 3 squares and a place to shack up, I'm not sure I want to "friend" the other "ladies" in jail with me.
And how in the heck did two people generate so much laundry? And what's with all this sand in my luggage? I did make it home with some cute souvenirs for a blog giveaway so stay tuned for an awesome contest.
So back to the whales. Amazing creatures. All 45 feet and @40 tons. Go to Wiki for more details. On Maui, we saw babies with their moms. The babies wanted to come close to the shore and the boats. I don't think the moms were happy about that. They were so cute. Here are some more pics taken by Hubby of course:
This one was having a whale of a time (pun intended) splashing his fins around. Maybe he was trying for a tan or a little scratch on the belly.
And is he flipping me off or what?
This guy finally showed his fluke and dove down right under our boat. Our boat had a hydrophone that our guide stuck in the water. We could hear him singing. We could also hear the whale song from our boat along with a few blows here and there. Really cool.
Somewhere Over the Rainbow: We got this one on our last day walking along the beach path. The colors were very vivid. No, VE, you can't have my picture when your readers want rainbows and puppies.
That's all from Maui. There are more pictures (probably over 200) but I've got to spend time putting together a digital album so this is probably all I will post (I know that you're breathing a sigh of relief.) And for those of you waiting for the thong bikini photo, you'll be waiting a very long time. My apologies but hubby said it made my tattoos look big.
It's always raining puppies over at humor-blogs.com. How about a smiley vote?
