Does swimming with dolphins somehow make you a expert? I swam with a few in Clearwater Fl and other than discovering their breath smells, they are really powerful and being goosed by them is most unpleasant, I can't really admit to knowing much more after the experience than before. Once they realised I didn't have fish, they fucked off.
Never did find out if they were freemasons either, forgot to ask. Seals definitely are though, I'm sure of that.
The Bible is full of interest. It has noble poetry in it; and some clever fables; and some blood-drenched history; and some good morals; and a wealth of obscenity; and upwards of a thousand lies.

Just seals, or sea lions as well?
She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
Oh, my my! Oh my, she flies!

Doubt they'd let sealions in, they're too gobby.

Ah, true.

That was pretty breit, Bart. Not unexpected, just breit. That's German for 'wide' or 'broad', as in 'broad humour'.

Thommo called me an "opalescent manatee" yesterday. Now I know why.

"Seen" is a coarse and chalky relation. Let's just say that there was a warm and aromatic manatee milieu and from this bubbling cauldron of ideas and impressions you plucked your epithet.
