Oh dear god..a millenial killer whale. Now there's a twisted mix of insecurity and awesomeness.

you must be new here.

Dolphins are highly cultured. [Cetacean needed]

Five killer whales named as plaintiffs in court case which argues they deserve the same constitutional protection from slavery as humans. SeaWorld: "Cetacean needed"

Japan blubbers it needs to krill whales for research porpoises. Aussies says "cetacean needed"


Meh. I don't see every headline, and I don't go archive hunting every time I see a headline that amuses me just to make sure no one ever, ever used it before lest I lol wrong and shame myself before the Internet.

Yah but you don't have to kill and scavange for your own food. Having a carzy mother might actually be an advantage if you did.

Killer whales = Orcas
