I smell a money-making opportunity here...

If I had a whale, how much could I charge my fellow Masters swimmers for a 2-minute ride? Hmmm...

I'm going to go scour the classifieds for used whales for sale.

Any fat jokes about me and my blowhole are not encouraged!

Seriously though, we should get one for Austin...

The kiss at the end was adorable.

I remember a story (which I can't find via a web search) about the beluga's at the Chicago Oceanarium. Beluga's are apparently great at imitating sounds in their environment. For example, the washer/dryer for the staff was near the beluga tank, and the belugas would mimick the sound. They also were paying attention to the dolphins' training sessions. One night as the the trainers were leaving, the heard and saw the dolphins "practicing" their moves. The belugas were in the adjacent tank doing the whistle calls...and watching.
