Quotes of the Morning: Killer Dolphins... Seriously

“It may be the oddest tale to emerge from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Armed dolphins, trained by the US military to shoot terrorists and pinpoint spies underwater, may be missing in the Gulf of Mexico.
Experts who have studied the US navy’s cetacean training exercises claim the 36 mammals could be carrying ‘toxic dart’ guns. Divers and surfers risk attack, they claim, from a species considered to be among the planet’s smartest. The US navy admits it has been training dolphins for military purposes, but has refused to confirm that any are missing.”

“We’ve continued to pay (and actually rehired) the guy who padded his resume and screwed up the response to Katrina. We rehired him to evaluate the response to Katrina. The thing that he helped screw up. If you hear a loud popping noise, that’s just my brain exploding.”
