    That is so weird.

    These stories can't have a positive effect for "Stingray City" in the Cayman Islands.

    Man this really casts a black cloud over the Stingray population. Stingrays have been such classy and well respected aquatic creatures, but in light of recent events, they have become the trouble makers of the deep. I know the whole Steve Irwin tragedy was an accident, but then this stingray goes and does something stupid like this and now the press and media are all over it, the timing was horrible.

    Stingrays are like the Pacers. For years gentle, class acts off the court, now they are vicious attacking machines.

    But seriously, WTF, the thing jumped in the boat? I didn't even know stingrays could jump.

    Not necessarily. Aren't they both part of the same dasyatidae (sp?) family? Something to do with the fact that they are both cartaliginous (sp?) fish? If that's the case, the poor dasyatidae (sp?) family looks almost as bad as the Pacers do.

    I was willing to give the stingrays a clean slate, but then they go and do this. How much do you think it would take to buy out the stingrays? Could we possibly get the Knicks to take on the stingrays? What about Houston, they've had problems with a complete lack of a stingray presence for years.

    Now I'm just waiting for the stingray apologists and supporters to hi-"jack" this thread and start trying to get us to turn against another peaceful creature of the depths. Like say, maybe European Catfish or something, (they just aren't athletic enough to swim in the ocean)

    I heard the stingray spokesman claims it was self defense.

    It was the 41st of April, being a quadruple leap year.
    I was driving through downtown Atlantis.
    My Barracuda was in the shop, so I was in a rented Stingray, and it was overheating.
    I pulled off into a Shell station.
    They said I'd blown a seal.
    I said, "Fix the damn thing and leave my private life out of it, okay pal?"

    While they were doing that I walked over to a place called "The Oyster Bar" -- a real dive.
    But I knew the owner -- he used to play for the Dolphins.
    I said "Hi, Gil!" You have to yell, he's hard of herring.
    Gil was also down on his luck.
    Fact is, he was barely keeping his head below water.

    I bellied up to the sandbar.
    He poured me the usual -- Rusty snail, hold the grunnion, shaken, not stirred.
    With a peanut-butter and jellyfish sandwich on the side -- heavy on the mako.
    I slipped him a fin - on porpoise.
    I was feelin' good. I even dropped a sand dollar in the box for Jerry's squids.
    For the halibut.

    Well, the place was crowded.
    We were packed in like sardines.
    They were all there to listen to the big band sounds of Tommy Dorsal.
    What sole.
    Tommy was rockin' the place with a very popular tuna, Salmon-chanted evening,
    And the stage was surrounded by screaming groupers -- Probably there to see the bass player.
    One of them was this cute little yellowtail, and she was giving me the eye.
    So I figured this was my chance for a little fun.
    You know, piece of pisces.
    But she said things I just couldn't fathom.
    She was too deep. Seemed to be under a lot of pressure.
    Boy, could she drink. She drank like a- She drank a lot.

    I said "What's your sign?" She said, "Aquarium."
    I said, "Great! Let's get tanked!"
    I invited her up to my place for a little midnight bait.
    I said, "C'mon, baby, it'll only take a few minnows."
    She threw me that same old line, "Not tonight. I've got a haddock."

    And she wasn't kidding either, cause in came the biggest, meanest looking haddock I'd ever seen come down the pike.
    He was covered with mussels.
    He came over to me, he said "Listen, shrimp, don't you come trollin' around here."
    What a crab. This guy was steamed. I could see the anchor in his eyes.
    I turned to him, I said "A-balone. You're just bein' shellfish."

    Well, I knew there was going to be trouble, and so did Gil, cause he was already on the phone to the cods.
    The haddock hits me with a sucker punch.
    I catch him with a left hook. He eels over.
    It was a fluke, but there he was, lyin' on the deck, flat as a mackerel. Kelpless.
    I said, "Forget the cods, Gil, this guy's gonna need a sturgeon."

    Well, the yellowtail was impressed with the way I landed her boyfriend.
    She came over to me, she said "Hey, big boy, you're really a game fish. What's your name?"
    I said, "Marlin."

    Well, from then on, we had a whale of a time. I took her to dinner. I took her to dance.
    I bought her a bouquet of flounders. And then I went home with her.
    And what did I get for my trouble?
    A case of the clams.

    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Thanks, Jay, now I'm going to have that song running (er, swimming) through my head all day.

    /Have it on my iPod...
    You're caught up in the Internet / you think it's such a great asset / but you're wrong, wrong, wrong

    stingrays! They give the whole ocean a bad image! Someone needs to teach these stingrays a lesson--let 'em know that we can't be havin' this kind of in the ocean any longer!

    I blame the media.

    As a Stingray supporter I am shocked at the disrespect for the noble Stingray. The Stingray is a peaceful creature who deserves the respect of all its fellow ocean dwellers above and below water.

    Apparently this most recent stingray attack violates the terms of the stingrays probation in Australia. This could result to up to 93 days in sea jail for all offending stingrays.
