The Original Fail Whale

It is important to note that suddenly, and against all probability, a Sperm Whale had been called into existence, several miles above the surface of an alien planet and since this is not a naturally tenable position for a whale, this innocent creature had very little time to come to terms with its identity.

Twitter owes Douglas Adams a debt of gratitude. (Fail Whale via ThinkGeek)

  1. I had forgotten all about that Fail Whale.

    Have you seen Yiying Lu's artwork other than Fail Whale? It's marvelous.
