Aquarium staff at Kinosaki Marine World in western Japan recently noticed that their dolphins were less acrobatic in their performances and more lethargic in general. Concerned about their health, the dolphins were weighed and found to be significantly heavier since only a few months prior. Apparently a fattier mackeral, their typical breakfast, lunch, and dinner, was to blame. Aquarists quickly started calling the dolphins “fatty” and “fatty-fat-fat” and telling them no one would love them in an effort to get them to throw-up their meals after eating them. When that failed, they tried putting them on a diet and an increased exercise regimen, which appears to be working. This story was only worth posting because of these pics of fat dolphins I found:
I’m big boned!
A niche fetish within a niche fetish. We just made one total weirdos day.
