It appears that the oil companies in the Gulf of Mexico have found fresh, new expertise in deep-sea rig inspection enlisting the help of sperm whales. I hear their work for squid.

  1. Great. In addition to corner-cutting rig workers, we now have to worry about reckless sperm whales swimming amongst the risers.

  2. Yeah seriously! WTF!? Who is those sperm whales thinkin’ they is?? What? Ocean ain’t big enough for you? Gotta get your spermaceti all up in our risers? Hey, our drill equipment was there first, go find some squid to bother.
