Pile driving into the water with a head long rush for the flush, pro-whaling nations were set to cow tip the scales in their favour. Looking set to sweep a larger loop hole for their whale meat scavenging expeditions, the chain broke on their drawstring pro-whaling majority at the latest meet up of the International Whaling Commission.
First to dunk under the blue rinse, beefing up the fishing hauls with the addition of dolphins and porpoises in the mix. Defeated by the majority against.
Second to feel the burn of sleeping too long atop a heater left on the lowest setting, the casting of secret ballots. Again, defeated by the majority with a clear conscious effort to spit polish the windows in full and naked view.
Lastly, making a holy trinity proud to call itself a hat trick, defeat to clear away the commerical ban to simmer semantic arguments over scientific research porpoises.
