A fire on board the Japanese whaler the Nisshin Maru means its mission has had to be cut short. A Japanese government spoke of his disappointment at having to curtail its 'research'.
As someone who works in the public sector under constant pressure to produce 'research', I know what he means, and decided to help out by wading out to sea, pitchfork in hand, and skewering a dolphin to death. The carcass is now in the post to the Japanese embassy, footnotes, bibliography and all.
Mmm, dolphin, can't get enough of that dolphin 'research'.
