To say he’s excited would be like saying people were taken aback when Kanye West announced his plans to run for president.

I can see it now! The largest ever known to have lived on our planet, larger than any of the dinosaurs, a creature we hunted so much that 99% of its numbers disappeared is right here, right now, live!”
