Have you taken the opportunity to 'to honour the oceans and products they provide' yet today?

Because apparently I should have done, as today is World Ocean Day. The toe curler in the headline is from a Wiki entry.

Other things on the to do list include:

"..think about what the ocean means to them and what it has to offer all of us with hopes of conserving it for present and the future generations".

"..take the time to think about how the ocean affects you, and how you affect the ocean, and then organize or participate in activities that celebrate our world ocean".

The EU has a take on it too, but it is far too dull to make the effort of mockery worthwhile.

Should I find myself anywhere near an ocean later on, maybe I will buy it a drink.

There's Oceans bar here in Hackney. Perhaps you should make your way over here and meet some of the tropical fish.

Is the "World" prefix really necessary, it's not like there are any local oceans anywhere.

Benedict white points out we can honour the oceans, indeed the whole planet, by pissing in the sea.

I couldn't get to the coast today, so I pissed in a river. It will get to the ocean eventually.

Anon - but that's on the wrong side of the river..

Ian - Quite true. I wonder if Billy Ocean feels the reflected glory.

FG - A wise man is our Benedict. I can also see the benefit of your approach.
