Skywhale landing in Balloon Spectacular a case of life imitating satire

I'm sure you would have heard of the infamous Skywhale. Well, it's in the news again.

See, it was flying as part of the annual Balloon Spectacular. It made a rather inelegant landing in the Canberra suburb of Florey.

Needless to say, the huge ten breasted cetacean was a bizarre sight, and many people stopped to look more closely at it after it had landed.

The photo included in this report is quite striking. The humans are tiny in comparison to the bizarre creature's immense boobs. Instantly put me in mind of this memorable scene from the Woody Allen movie Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex (But Were Afraid to Ask).

A perfect example of life imitating satire, eh?
