There Is No Part Of This Story That Is Not Surreal

Dick Van Dyke, yes that Dick Van Dyke, is 84 years old and still surfing.

Except he maybe ought to not be surfing because paddling out past the breakers apparently exhausts him so much that while surfing he falls asleep.

And wakes up out of sight of land.

Whereupon he is pushed back to shore by a pod of friendly porpoises.

The porpoises were unavailable for comment.

Now you know why I like to read the British newspaper websites. You can’t get this sort of thing on CNN. Instead, you get it on the Scottish equivalent of David Letterman (porpoise story at the 9:00 mark). Hat tip to Rufus F.
