I'm not sure that the vision in my head was the vision you intended. This isn't what happened inside my head, but now you're stuck with it because I feel like sharing the pain.

I am fairly certain that a whale shark would cost more.

but is it the most expensive if it's not for sale?

you may as well say the moon is the most expensive lawn ornament.

I'd like to see the aquarium that could house a whale shark.

I am sure that if you tried hard enough, you could find someone willing to fence you a whale shark. You can't exactly waltz into a pet store and buy a hippopotamus, but that didn't exactly stop Pablo Escobar from obtaining quite a few of them.

Enjoy Georgia.

My sister SCUBA'd with that sucker.

That specific sucker or a sucker from the same species? 

Is the Georgia aquarium big enough to provide SCUBA tours?

More importantly, did she have a whale of a time? Or was it a bit fishy?
