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 our air hole at the same time and it should cause the ship to turn
over and sink.
They tried it and sure enough, the ship turned over and quickly sank.
Soon however, the whales realized the sailors were swimming to the
safety of the shore.
The male whale was enraged that they were going to get away and
told the female, "Lets swim after them and gobble them up before they
reach the shore."
At this point, he realized the female was becoming reluctant to follow
him. "Look," she said, "I went along with the blow job, but I absolutely
refuse to swallow the seamen."
