CNN TALKS OUT OF BOTH SIDES OF ITS... BALEEN

Found on CNN.com's front page at the same time...

Save the whales!
Anti-whaling countries will try to thwart a Japanese-led attempt to abolish a whale sanctuary in the southern seas and condemn Tokyo for continuing to catch the huge mammals in the name of science.
Eat the whales!
With Japan under fire for plans to expand its whaling program, a fast food chain is offering a new product aimed at using up stocks from past hunts -- whale burger.

The 380 yen ($3.50) slice of fried minke whale in a bun went on sale on Thursday at Lucky Pierrot, a restaurant chain in the port city of Hakodate on Japan's northern-most island of Hokkaido.
(And of course, it should be noted that whaling has taken its toll on the minke whale population over the years.)
