Though rarely seen outside their natural habitat of literally every fucking road in Malta, a pair of trucks yesterday took a vaycay down to Sirens in St Paul’s Bay.
While the world has heard many wholesome stories of people rushing to help large grey creatures that inadvertently wandered onto the beach, the trucks seem to have had the opposite effect, scattering crowds as they slowly lumbered over the rocks where beachgoers lay their towels.
“The trucks were literally driving into people on the rocks, not even telling them to move,” the person who sent the photos to Lovin Malta told the newsroom on Wednesday afternoon. “It was flipping insane”.
We’re sure tourists flocked to snap some selfies with these remarkable specimens, who are usually shy about entering beach territory. Though not anywhere close to being classified as an endangered species, it’s a true relief to see that they can survive in other habitats, should they ever build themselves into a corner.
Jokes aside, while we’re sure they must have had some sort of permit, we think it’s pretty bad form to carry out this kind of works on a beach at peak tourist season, especially at that time of day.
