A whale of a time

How crazy is this?! A couple took their yacht for a sailing trip off the coast of Cape Town, South Africa and were surprised to spot a 40-ton whale swimming near the surface of the water next to their boat. The whale swam closer to their yacht, flipped up into the air and came down on their boat, smashing the mast. The poor whale flipped around helplessly on their deck before slipping back into the ocean. Ralph Mothes, 59, and Paloma Werner, 50, reported that "there were bits of skin and blubber left behind, and the mast was wrecked." Insane, right?! To read more, visit the Daily Telegraph.
