Dick Van Dyke rescued by porpoises. Really.
The incredibly chipper Dick Van Dyke appeared on "The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson" last week to promote the release of "Chitty, Chitty, Bang, Bang" on Blu-ray. While there, he told a tall tale I really, really hope is true. Porpoises rescued the famous song-and-dance man:
"I went out once and fell asleep on (a surf) board. I did. And I woke up out of sight of land, and I looked around and I started paddling with the swells and I start seeing fins swimming around me, and I thought, 'I'm dead.' They turned out to be porpoises. They pushed me all the way to shore. I'm not kidding."
I hope they make a musical out of this. Skip to 8:49 to hear the tale.
