Life is not a Disney film

There has been a lot of gnashing of teeth about the beached whales that have been found around the country recently, with one idiot going so far as to spraypaint ‘mans fault’ (sic) on one of the poor creatures.

No, it’s not man’s fault. Everything dies. That’s nature. Sea creatures have been washing up on beaches since before man existed and will continue long after we’re gone.

It’s really quite scary to see grown adults living under the belief that life is a Disney movie and everything has a happy ending. It doesn’t. Get used to it.
