“I get by” sang The Beatles “with a little help from my friends” in their drum&bass banger With A Little Help From My Friends. Wise words, but they also sang “Yellow matter custard, dripping from a dead dog’s eye, crabalocker fishwife, pornographic priestess, boy you’ve been a naughty girl, you’ve let your knickers down” so the jury is, frankly, out.
However, it’s fair to say that this seal certainly got by with a little help from his friends. Or, at the very least, help from a boatful of chaps. The guys were out Whale watching and promptly bumped into a pod of 12 Orcas. That’s just about as magical as things get right?
Not for these fellas. It transpires that the whales were following a small seal, and were pretty intent on turning him into lunch. However, the smart seal saw his escape route, and flung himself on to the back of the boat, much to the amazement of everybody aboard.
Luckily, we live in a world where everybody carries a camera around with them 24hours a day, so they managed to capture the footage, and it’s now melting the internet at an alarming rate, and making the puppey-eyed seal more internet famous than a Kardashian’s arse-cheek.
