Donkeys & Whales & Robotsaurus... Oh My!

Yesterday, a donkey was dropped out of an airplane as part of a publicity stunt by some merry band of entrepreneurs. I'm still trying to figure out how the donkey was able to deploy his parachute in addition to whether or not he made it safely to the ground. In today's news, a whale exploded out of the ocean and cannonballed onto a boat (above) that was at the wrong place at the wrong time. Reports indicate that the boat did not immediately pull a Titanic and that everyone survived. If I was on the boat, I would have instantly died of a heart attack once I realized I was on a boat in the ocean, let alone a 40-ton beast trying to belly flop on top of my head. So this leads me to believe that if yesterday we had an animal get dropped out of a plane, and today a whale drops on top of a boat, then what will happen tomorrow? If I was a betting man, I would put on my chips on Robotsaurus going on a massive rampage in some metropolitan city.

[Edit: It has been brought to my attention that the donkey was actually para sailing rather than being tossed out of an airplane. Everything else is accurate, especially my Robotsaurus prediction.]
