Classy.

When the International Whaling Commission (IWC) meets in Morocco later this month, Japan is hoping to swing enough votes to lift the worldwide whaling moratorium. Their tactics? Cash and call girls.

The governments of St Kitts and Nevis, the Marshall Islands, Kiribati, Grenada, Republic of Guinea, and Ivory Coast all entered negotiations to support Japan’s desire to slaughter whales in exchange for money and “good girls.” (ecorazzi)

Now the Associated Press is reporting that Japan may leave the IWC altogether if the vote doesn’t go their way.  Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Minister Masahiko Yamada was asked Tuesday if Tokyo would quit the IWC if progress was not made toward easing the ban on commercial whaling. “I am considering various options,” Yamada said. “This is really the final stage, and we’re not sure how things are going to turn out.”

I hope it’s the final stage and they aren’t going to stoop any lower than bribing voters with prostitutes!
