This is a video from a group of divers off Kona, Hawaii on a manta ray watching expedition when a bottlenose dolphin with a fishing line in its mouth and wrapped around a pectoral fin comes to ask for help. Thankfully, one of the divers is able to successfully remove the line. Did you know dolphins are capable of self-recognition? Because half the time I see myself in the mirror I think there's a monster in my bathroom. I have to go take a nap now before I collapse at my desk. How I even made it this far is a true testament to my
INCREDIBLE WORK ETHIC willingness to take drugs. Have some fun for me this weekend, but don't do anything I wouldn't do (I would do everything is the thing).
Hit the jump for the video, skip to 3:30 for the beginning of the rescue.
Thanks to Jody, who rescues dolphins all the time and amazingly has zero problems picking up women.
