Post Porpoises rescue Dick Van Dyke

Quote:
On screen, Dick Van Dyke has been rescued from untimely death by flying cars and magical nannies. Off screen, the veteran star of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Mary Poppins had to rely on the help of a pod of porpoises after apparently dozing off aboard his surfboard. Im not kidding, he said afterwards.

Van Dykes ordeal began during an ill-fated trip to his local beach. I woke up out of sight of land, the 84-year-old actor told Craig Ferguson on his TV chat show. I started paddling with the swells and I started seeing fins swimming around me and I thought Im dead!

Van Dyke was wrong. They turned out to be porpoises, he said. And they pushed me all the way to shore. The porpoises were unavailable for comment.

That's pretty awesome...

This story is a little fishy but I like the guy anyway. I might like the drugs he was on too.
