dolphins. of. kilburn.
Some regular Tall Talesers will already be wondering about all this dolphin stuff and thinking it sounds all a bit like a Kilburn story. It is not. I'm not good enough at Photoshop. And also, the Kilburn stories aren't made up.
All the same, as some icing on the cake, there is a recent sequel to The Day of the Dolphin, and it's written by a guy called 'Kilburn Hall':
40-years after man's first successful attempt to communicate with another species, the U.S. Navy has transformed intelligent, ocean-dwelling mammals into advanced biological weapons systems. (ABWS) But when one of the Navy's dolphins goes AWOL and an alien craft begins driving the marine life away from the area known as Milwaukee Deep, 26,000 feet deep, the dolphins have their own agenda, one that transcends human greed and petty hostilities. To survive!
My first thought, and yours too, I bet: So Long, and Thanks for all the Fish.
