A-Hole Meets Blow Hole

1/13/2009 12:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

This is not Sea World -- some dude actually got this close to a Killer Whale while surfing in New Zealand this weekend ... and lived!


Fun Fact: The surfer told reporters he once saw a shark eat a girl, so the Orca didn't make him nervous. Who's ready to shred some waves?!

Killer Whales don't attack humans...If the surfer knew this then that explains why he wasn't scared. Plus they are beautiful animals. I'd be too amazed to be scared.

That is nuts! Good thing the whale didn't think he was a seal (esp. since he was earing all black) and make a snack out of his dumb ass.

$1 million dollars each? Thats insane. Wanna end up like Zimbabwe? The have actually printed $50 BILLION and $100 BILLION bank notes (actually for sale on EBAY) and have 1,000,000+ % inflation. Prices rise so fast that if you deposit a check they only give you 1/2 its value because the next day inflation will wipe out the rest by the time the check clears. Zimbabwe a country where everyone is a BILLIONAIRE but 85% are UNEMPLOYED.

ok you dorks, maybe do some research and us your brains once in a while. There hasn't been one reported incident of a killer whale ever killing a human being in the wile. Another fact, killer whales aren't in fact whales but part of the dolphin family. I'd love to swim that close to one but wouldn't be brave enough to.
