Then there’s hope for me.



That orca might be from NYC; I heard a few Bronx cheers in there.


“Come in, the water is lovely.”
muffled sniggering


Don’t listen to this at work, you will have trouble stiffing your laughs…


Dory: Maybe louder. Rah! Rah!
Marlin: Don’t do that!
Dory: Too much orca. Did it sound a little orca-ish to you?


Disguising its language attempts as farts is key to completely assimilating into human society. I’m not fooled.


Me: “Wow, that was really impressive! … Oh, that was the human.”




When they’ve learned to speak our language we may not be happy what they have to say about us


Maybe the orcas can teach the humans how to live in a tiny cell separated from the rest of all human company, and see what kind of words they come up with.


Entirely obligatory Far Side cartoons


At least teach them some useful phrases like, “The ball is bad” and “Pa is not”


Yeah…That still needs a bit of polishing though, no?
