Pop HazMat Alert: Don’t “Pet the Dolphin”!
HAZMAT HEADLINE DU JOUR: 3 Killer Commando Dolphins from Ukraine on the Loose
CULTURAL TOXICITY QUOTIENT: 2 & 1/2. Negligible, particularly if killer dolphins are armed with mines and speeding toward infamous Carnival Cruise ship, Triumph, AKA “Fabled Floating City of Fecalopolis.” Potential for positive cultural contribution significant.
RUDIMENTARY ANALYSIS: Lovable sea-mammals, approachable in New Age “swim-with-the-dolphins” pseudo-spiritual encounters, can likewise be trained to disembowel humans with Blades of Slashing Death affixed to snouts. Occasionally, these echolocating Agents of Assassination escape frigid Ukrainian waters and probably head to Florida.
EXISTENTIAL RAMIFICATIONS: Miami vacations spoiled by great crimson pools of human chum.
TAKE-AWAY QUOTE: “The dolphins are highly trained, intelligent and can strike anywhere.” (Told ya)
THERAPEUTIC CINEMA: The Day of the Dolphin (1973) starring George C. Scott
MUSICAL REHAB: Theme song from TV’s immortal Flipper series. Suggested lyric changes that may cycle intrusively through your mind for the remainder of the week: “They call him Flipper, Flipper, Flipper, faster than lightning. No one, you see, kills swifter than he … And you know Flipper lives in a world full of wonder, to slash your guts under, under the sea.” SING IT.
