Here's one from the Bizarre Quotes Department. It's from an article entitled "St Kitts-Nevis supports development of whaling industry," and quotes that Caribbean country's Fisheries Minister, Cedric Liburd, as listing the following reason for wanting to whale:
"We have all these tourists coming here, what are we going to feed them with?"
You REALLY need to spend less time listening to those Japanese handlers, Minister. Whatever they might be paying you to sound stupid, it isn't enough.
If you want to do a little independent research on the impact of whaling on tourism, check out our Iceland Whales Pledge site, where more than 100,000 people have promised to visit Iceland if, and only if, that country stops whaling.
