Incredible.

If I were still in Senegal, I would go to see these.  It’s horribly sad that they washed ashore, but can you imagine if you were actually there on that beach?  Also, look at the eyes…

Of course, then I came up with this.  And this, which I found interesting for the crazy story at the top of the page.  And then this.  And finally, this.

Why don’t more people make whale jokes?

    When I drove Dave to college for the first time, I had a couple of books on tape. One was titled “Fluke, or I know why the winged whale Sings”, by Christopher Moore. Anyhoo, the book was an interesting book, although ultimately flawed, imho, by the Deus Ex Machina insertion of a science fiction device, in what had started out as more of a natural history fiction. Still, I kept listening as I drove.

    I just checked Google, b/c I couldn’t remember the exact title. It turns out Christopher Moore also wrote “Lamb, the Gospel According to Biff”, which is a hilarious (and very irreverent) look at the life of Jesus, including the reason why Christians eat pork products. (Bacon!)

    Here is one of the links to the whale title: http://www.amazon.com/Fluke-Know-Winged-Whale-Sings/dp/0380978415. Hope it works.

    There aren’t as many whale jokes because whales can’t leave footprints in the butter.

    (Whereas, I ALWAYS know when there’s been an elephant in my fridge!)

    There are lots of whale jokes. We just don’t get them, b/c we can’t translate whale songs yet. It’s a good thing too, since most of them are about us.

    “How do you get a human to laugh on Friday?”

    “Tell them a joke on Monday!”

    Sometimes the punchline comes unexpectedly, and the jokee ends up laughing so hard that her drink comes out her nose! The other whales will inevitably chorus in unison, “THAR SHE BLOWS!”
