Drunk Man Exchanges Wholesome Texts With An Aquarium Educator

Ever get so plastered that you start getting curious about everything around you? Instead of drunk-texting your ex, why not get in touch with an educator who will teach you something about the oceans and their inhabitants? Maybe this time you will actually learn a lesson…

Over the weekend, one Charleston man grabbed his phone and did just that. Over the course of two hours, he drunk-texted the “Ask An Aquarium Educator” number seven different questions, and they responded the next morning.


While standing at an intersection after 10:30 P.M. Saturday night, the tipsy man wanted to know what he would have seen in that spot 10,000 years ago.

Maybe this is what he was picturing?


Then he inquired about what the marine biologists found interesting about the Charleston area, and he wondered what they disagreed about. 

Shortly after midnight, he texted again, this time asking why seahorses “grab anything they can with their prehensile tail?”

That’s a good question, and here’s the definition of ‘prehensile.’ Merriam Webster defines prehensile as, “adapted for seizing or grasping especially by wrapping around.” 

Glad we got that cleared up.

The party boy saved a great question for last—why is it that people are advised to eat oysters in months that have an “R” in their names?

Now you see why you gotta wait until September to enjoy those oysters, people.

Twitter users loved the exchanged, amused by the hilarious, drunken questions.

Now, what if you are the marine biologist’s ex texting the number? Things might get extra fishy then…
