I'm sorry Robbo, it's cruel but true

Dr. Rusty Shackleford (and since he has a PhD from a fine PAC-10 school he's gotta be trusted!) posts on the improbably true story of the successful mating of a whale and a dolphin, complete with pictures, by researchers in Hawaii.

Researchers on the east coast in Coral Gables have been succesful in their attempts to mate a dolphin and a turkey: results are below the fold.

More like a dolphin and a Rastafarian. Cue the Jimmy Buffet B-side hit "Jolly Mon." And twist up a couple of fatties . . . metaphorically speaking, of course.

Oh this is just too good to pass up:

Correction: Wholphin-Birth Story
HONOLULU - In an April 14 story about the birth of a whale-dolphin calf, The Associated Press reported erroneously that its dolphin father was 15 feet long. Park officials say the dolphin father was 8 feet long.


Fill in your own joke.
