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
The female whale agreed, so 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 whale was enraged that they were going to get away and said to
the female, "Quick! Let's swim after them and gobble them up before they
get to the shore!"
At this point, he realized the female whale was becoming reluctant to
"Look," she said, "I went along with the blow job, but I absolutely
refuse to swallow the seamen."
