Flipper is packing a nine

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. LinkSo if you want to go surfing now, make sure you don’t have a beard and you’re not wearing a turban, else flipper might just bust a cap in your ass. Looks like Al Qaeda will have to release their killer whales to take the dolphins out.
