Orca wouldn't tweet, which would be a big improvement. Orcas aren't racist. Orcas wouldn't give tax breaks to those who don't need them. Orcas wouldn't provoke unstable dictators with nuclear weapons. Orcas wouldn't make policy based on what they saw on Fox 'News' that morning. Orcas don't lie constantly. Orcas wouldn't steal healthcare from millions. Orcas wouldn't cozy up with Vladimir Putin.

A good shot that Orca would also bite Paul Ryan's head off if he got too close, so......win-win.
Only in today's America can policy be based on the notion that the rich have too little and the poor have too much.

Wait, that one's an assumption.

I have zero recollection of the late 70's film though I probably saw it.

The only thing I remember is Bo Derek sliding down a broken pier into its mouth and being eaten.
Sigh.

Bit right through Bo’s cast!

Was kind of a Jaws ripoff, swapping a killer whale for the shark.

Bad movie, but better than okra.

It was on TV the day before this thread was started, on one of those cable tv channels that shows movies with commercials.

It was more Moby Dick than Jaws. It was personal between the whale and the sea captain, and the crew gets picked off one-by-one.

Sad movie.
