I never could get all the way through Moby Dick. Maybe I'll have better luck with Moby Duck.

Michael Jones I don't know... I think Moby Duck requires almost as much patience to get through as the book the title parodies. :) It's really long, and the author loves big bombastic words (like "bombastic").

Jeanette  "Astute Crabbist" I agree, Michael. I had it from the library once, and at that time it looked too overwhelming for me to attempt. It seems like it could have been a lot shorter, but you know how those scientists are. ;-)

Mikki :) I might give it a try too.

What?!! No whale penises?! Well, humph. I guess I'll just forget it.
