Onion article about dolphins using tools to take over the world is slowly coming true! Yay!
As long as they don't give us thanks and leap out of the planet, all will be well.
"sponging" sound kind of dirty, especially when the article calls it a "solitary activity". otherwise, what kittenhead said!
spongeworthy dolphins! *semi-obscure seinfeld reference*
Do not, I repeat, do not google "sex with dolphins" unless you'd like to trust humans again.
"Sex with dolphins"--there's an old Upright Citizen's Brigade episode about that. . .
What a load of cobblers. Dolphins using tools? Rubbish. They're so stupid they're probably trying to eat them. Next you'll be telling me they have some sort of language or something. Pfff.
>"sponging" sound kind of dirty, especially when the article calls it a "solitary activity". Yeah, but the article also says: “Males are more interested in forming alliances with other males than sponging,” If it was a dirty, solitary activity, the males would be all over it. Or am I projecting?
Hey, Flipper, scrub my back, willya?
BlueHorse, beware of
you ask a dolphin to do behind your back.
And for gawd's sake don't pet his tummy, no matter how cute he pretends to be.
You can't say now that you weren't warned.
I'm a male dolphin and don't go sponging very often. I like to swim with the other guys and not appear in sponge-faced disguise.
