Hayes (Hayes13) Just after breakfast, too... *ack*

But this chapter was pretty funny actually.
"That mortal man should feed upon the creature that feeds his lamp, and ... eat him by his own light, as you may say; this seems so outlandish a thing that one must needs go a little into the history and philosophy of it."

and I loved this line:
"The fact is, that among his hunters at least, the whale would by all hands be considered a noble dish, were there not so much of him; but when you come to sit down before a meat-pie nearly one hundred feet long, it takes away your appetite."
