Smart Whale

A male whale and a female whale were swimming off the coast of Japan when

they noticed a whaling ship. The male whale recognized it as the same ship

that had harpooned his father many years earlier.

He said to the female whale, “Lets both swim under the ship and blow out of

our air holes at the same time and it should cause the ship to turn over and


They tried it and sure enough, the ship turned over and quickly sank. Soon

however, the whales realized the sailors had jumped overboard and were

swimming to the safety of shore.

The male was enraged that they were going to get away and said to the

female, “lets swim after them and gobble them up before they reach the

shore.” At this point, the male whale realized the female was becoming

reluctant to follow him.

“What’s the matter darling?”

“Look,” she said, “I went along with the blow job, but I absolutely refuse

to swallow the seamen.”
