Yesterday we told you that Japan suspended its whaling operations in the Southern Ocean, and on last night’s episode of The Colbert Report, host Stephen Colbert opened his monologue by saying that the world of whale hunting had some big news…

“I’ve been tracking this news for years,” he said, “perhaps to the point of madness!”

He went on to say, “I’ve always said we must save the whales, they are rare, beautiful creatures that should be served only on special occasions. But starting today, folks, whale might be a no time food.”

The funnyman explained, “The Japanese don’t kill whales for fun, they do it for research purposes, without this research how will Japanese scientists know what teriyaki blowhole tastes like?”

Then Paul Watson and his group, the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, got a shout out. “Why are the Japanese abandoning their tradition and their science? Because of anti-whaling organization the Sea Shepherds, featured on Animal Planet’s Whale Wars, and captained by eco-warrior Paul Watson.”

Colbert then gave some background for his viewers, and brought up the fact that Watson is so extreme in his beliefs that he got kicked out of Greenpeace. “That’s like being kicked out of Charlie Sheen’s house for too much cocaine,” he responded.

The segment ended with Colbert saying, “So, congratulations environmentalists, now the whales have won!”

It fails as education because whatever useful information it manages to convey, any benefit of this is negated by the confusion it fosters in an arena that is already beset with massive confusion.
