Sea Lion Naps On Roof Of A Car -- Because Why Not?

"That is the weirdest thing."

Maybe the car’s owner ordered a sea lion roof.

Or maybe this cute critter just needed a place to nap.

Whatever the case, a sea lion resting on the roof of a Honda Civic at the Nichols Brothers shipyard in Freeland, Washington, caused quite a commotion on Saturday, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported.

“That is the weirdest thing,” one observer can be heard saying in the video above.

Melanie J. Sceva Hill posted the clip to Facebook, where it now serves as a reminder that anyone considering a car pool with marine mammals might want to rethink that.

The local sheriff’s department eventually arrived at the scene to help rouse the groggy creature, the P-I reported.
