June 1, 2007: Three-year-old swims with whale



The swimming boy is Yang Yang - he's three, and he's been swimming since he was one. The beluga whale is all white... it's the one on the right. Together they swim in China to mark June 1 as the International Children's Day.



Teh boy is a natural, but the whale is a stronger swimmer.

What? My mom said everyday was Children's Day...


Aliantha  Friday Jun 1 08:25 AM

It looks like something out of a childrens tv show.

Lucky Yang Yang is from China and not Japan or he might be turned into play lunch.



Beestie  Friday Jun 1 08:32 AM

Well that's an interesting way to enforce China's one kid per couple rule.



ferret88  Friday Jun 1 08:43 AM

I thought Yang Yang was a giant panda...



Aliantha  Friday Jun 1 08:47 AM

How come he's got green togs in one pic and black togs in the other?

He must have had two swims that day.

What is it with you and underbritches today (Batman thread)?


Aliantha  Friday Jun 1 09:03 AM

Dunno. I think I'm waiting for the midyear sales to start so I can rejuvenate my own lingerie drawer. That could be it.

Or...I could just be responding to the threads...

Or, maybe I'm horny.

I noticed that too!

It must be a chick thing.

I was organizing the digital photos (big job >60 thousand photos.. eerrrrg) and came across a set of DaughterofV and her cousin taken about six years ago. They were working on a science project, a very involved science project that had to be built outside because of its size and complexity. There was fire, power tools, safety glasses and work gloves. They built an incredible edifice and I took 20-30 pictures of the process.

She looked so cute, so young. Some were funny with her holding the propane torch with one hand and her hair back from her face with the other.

Upon showing the recently rediscovered set of pics to her, her very first reaction was "I don't remember those pants."

wtf?

You had to find out sometime... she said that so you wouldn't suspect you're being raised for food.


Flint  Friday Jun 1 02:13 PM

Cool name -my 5yo is called Thor, also swimming since a toddler. I think he has a new nickname....


busterb  Friday Jun 1 09:07 PM

OK. Folks pick one for the grill. Sick yeah I know, but I'll not let someone beat me to the post.



lizzymahoney  Friday Jun 1 09:33 PM

Well I was looking at that whale and thinking that would be a hella lot of caviar, only I knew that was a really dumb joke.

So, given that, I'd pick the longpig for the grill.



Karenv  Saturday Jun 2 12:43 AM

I took my kid swimming with dolphins, and the dolphins prefer children to adults. They interacted more with the children, and came closer. (It is very weird to be swimming underwater and see a dolphin come up to your child.) I will bet that whales are the same way.



xoxoxoBruce  Saturday Jun 2 01:09 AM

When you see a group of critters, aren't you attracted to the little ones?

Thorpedo is the nickname of Ian Thorpe (Thorpie), our wicked, hunky (well, he was...and REAAAALLLLYYY big...feet) world arse kicking swimmer


milkfish  Saturday Jun 2 10:13 AM

I like to think that every time I go to the seaside, I am swimming with dolphins. Dolphins, somewhere in that ocean.

By the same token, everybody at the shore is taking a dip in whale poop.

Thanks, I looked it up. Great role model, Thorpedo it isl


xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Jun 5 09:06 PM

Revisited.



monster  Tuesday Jun 5 09:17 PM

Well that either begs a headline:

"pedophile whale arrested"
"human child shape seen in dolphin snot. The Baby Booger is not up for auction on Ebay"

or to become a thread bomb...

I'm sure all y'all can do better



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Jun 5 10:34 PM

Pssst... not dolphin, whale.
