(no subject)

I just saw a WWF commercial (not the wrestling people, the guys with the panda) about fishing laws. It featured a little girl and her father standing at an aquarium viewing port. The little girl is staring delighted and inspired as a dolphin sidles up to them on the other side of the glass and makes friendly head-nods, y'know, like dolphins do. The little girl presses her fingers to the glass, smiling.

AND THEN A BIG NET SWOOPS DOWN OUT OF NOWHERE AND GRABS THE DOLPHIN. THE DOLPHIN STRUGGLES, TERRIFIED, BUT THE NET IS TOO POWERFUL, AND THE NET, LIKE A GREAT, EVIL HAND, DRAGS THE DOLPHIN AWAY, LEAVING THE WATER CLOUDY AND EMPTY LIKE MY SOUL.

It was VERY SCARY. Admittedly I am a big commie geek with a soft spot for dolphins but SCARY. I will now have nightmares like that episode of CSI where Nick spends the whole hour buried alive and panicking.

...well done, WWF. *shudder*
