Big fat gay


I was innocently link-following in Wikipedia, from Cloverfield to Humpback Whale, when I came upon this:

Herman Melville describes the humpback whale as "the most gamesome and light-hearted of all the whales, making more gay foam and white water than any other of them".

I don't think I need to say anything else.

  1. Imagine that! All this time I thought it was the sperm whale!

  2. I *knew* I found whales attractive, yet unobtainable due to shared interests.

    Tally ho! I'm off to ride the seas on my foamy whale friends. Maybe those bareback dolphin riders from that place in London can join me.

  4. Hee. I love that with a title of "Big Fat Gay" I had absolutely no idea what was coming next, yet clicked down anyway.

    Speaking of Big Fat Gay, I'm off in a few minutes to see a preview of Sex and the City.

    I love wiki-link-following. It's so distracting!

  6. I misread that at first and I thought it said "Big Fat Guy", and was looking for the reference. Then I read more carefully.

    Heh....but hey, that's a pretty whale there!

  11. Snooze: Don't read that, according to Bingowings it's a massively boring book.

    How about that IDV, I've heard of many gay animals over the years, but never whales. But why shouldn't they be happy?

  12. 'Big Fat Gay' - For a moment, I thought we were about to be treated to a post about Beast.

    I'm so disappointed now.

  13. I almost made 'gay' on our scrabulous game the other day, IDV. It didn't give me enough points or show any interest in my charms, so I went with another word.

  14. Cyberpete: Not only have I read it, I have written an exam on it. But you're right - I don't need to relive that.

  15. How much do you reckon a big gay whale can dish up in one sitting? A bucket full maybe?

    Hmm, foamy grey whale batter, not noice.
