Death To False Seals

VB Day

Not a reference to the poor beer of Australia, but of a singular victory in the blogosphere, against the forces of obscurantism and vice. Luke Donnellan's World of Leopard Seals is no more. We should be grown up about it, buut instead will gloat, and steal his pictures until his hosting is withdrawn.

Mwah, ah, ah, aaaaaah!

Did You Steal My Fishy Ice Lolly?

You see, this is what happens when an intruder encroaches upon an elephant seal's domain. While you or I might frown upon the practice of keeping a gigantic seal harem, you cannot just go and steal another man's wooman, M'K?

So, imagine my displeasure at the discovery of a number of pretenders to the Real Seal Deal. While this little number appears largely innocent fun, there is a far worse presence lurking on the dark side of the web.

Now, reasonable people might consider that leopard prints are suitable only for Essex girls and Ford Focus drivers from Leeds. Not so this paean to leopard seals, which is a large tank on my lawn. Well Daddy's got a fire bomb, M'K?

William Randolph Hearst - With Flippers!

Wiliam Randolph Hearst, instigator of the Spanish-American war, newspaper publisher, and all-round carved wood collector, might seem to be an odd inspiration for adorable elephant seals.

Yet, just below his Califnornian castle (it's actually a Ranch, named after the salad dressing), the elephant seals frolic in a convincing echo of his notorious 1920s house parties.

Although I might say that the sheer number of chicks here is better than Willie, or indeed anyone other than male model Fabio, has ever achieved.
