Dolphins Are No Dummies

Jude The Animal Expert Dude • 16

When they hear the term Dolphin, most laypeople think of the Bottlenose Dolphin. The gray-skinned Dolphin usually seen at water parks, on television, and in movies. If you are old, think Flipper.

But there are actually forty species of aquatic life that fall into the Dolphin category, including Killer Whales.

Dolphins have flippers which make them speedy swimmers. Still, they are not allowed to compete in the Olympics. Which is species-ism at its worst. Just because sharks didn’t work out, doesn’t mean all ocean-dwelling creatures should be banned from competing.

Dolphins are highly intelligent creatures. Smart enough to not watch cable news or participate in social media. Which explains why they suffer from very low rates of depression.

They also rarely get involved in politics. You will probably never see a Dolphin running for office (or swimming, for that matter.)

Dolphins love music and poetry. But they make lousy Beatniks due to their lack of fingers to snap.

They also stink at typing.
