Don't Rock the Boat

One evening toward the end of our first cruise, while sailing through Alaska's Inside Passage,  we joined a trivia game in the lounge. Before giving one of the questions, the emcee admonished the crowd not to shout out the answer to the next question or the ship would tip. I don't remember the exact wording of the question, but the answer was that Prince Charles is the Prince of ...

W(h)ales
...and everyone would run to the rail to try to see them.

Outside the box on the Headbanger theme of "Don't Rock the Boat". What will the others do? They are linked in my sidebar.

In a box of old snapshots somewhere, I think I have a picture of five or six first graders seated on a big piece of bulletin board paper, rocking away vigorously. They were reenacting the Gospel story of Jesus calming the sea.

That would have been a good one as well.

Love it! My son did a presentation for his college music class on the music of Wales. He put a slide in and played whale music at one point; it went over pretty well, lol! I would have loved to have seen your whales in person.

Excellent! When in Canada we only saw the tiniest tips of whale tails.
