If they're so smart, how come they haven't learned not to swim with tuna?

for the same reason some of us "clever" humans, havent learnt to avoid walking in front of cars, and drift nets are silent and insipid killers,dolphins use their sonar but the nets are monofilament and invisible so they cant see then,oh, nor can we underwater, more than one diver has perished in discarded net,maybe they like the tuna ! !

If they're that smart they'd have developed an underwater version of the Abrams battletank and blown the merry hell out of all the trawlers.

Perhaps Dolphins are not that smart because they are named after that IQ challenged Swedish actor Dolph Lundgren who failed to beat Stallone in Rocky IV.

Of course i would not say that to his face....he'd probably rip my head off and spit down my neck !!!

Men are the same as women, just inside out !

Dolph Lundgren is the result of a genetic experiment involving an ostrich and Beaker, the mad doctor's assistant from the Muppets... FACT!
