Open Post: Hosted By The Lobster Diver Who Got Trapped In The Mouth Of A Humpback Whale

A fisherman almost perished in the deep blue Atlantic last Friday when a humpback whale (accidentally?) scooped him up into its four-foot-wide mouth! 56-year-old Michael Packard was diving for lobsters off of Cape Cod when he felt a big bump. Suddenly, he was engulfed in darkness, cuz bitch was in a whale’s mouth. After about 30 to 40 seconds, Michael saw the light (he didn’t die, the whale had kindly breached the surface), and he was spat back out. Michael’s mate Josiah Mayo witnessed the incident, retrieved his friend, and called for help. Except for a few bruises, Michael is fine. As for the whale, it was just pissed Michael wasn’t squid, krill, or salmon.
