More proof of scientists hard at work and not spending all that grant money on frivolous things like Michelob Ultra, although I'm not so sure we can rule that out.

They call him Flipper, Flipper, faster than lightning,
No-one you see, is smarter than he,
And we know Flipper, lives in a world full of wonder,
Flying there-under, under the sea!

Flipper's hyperactive vocalizations explained.

So Flipper had more than just a platonic relationship with Sandy and Bud (note that the real dolphins used in the show were female).

Great, even more species where the females can be frustrated that 99.5% of the males have no idea what to do down there. Who says God doesn't have a sense of humor?

Slips vee and ImNotDave a fin. Slides a 20 spot to Catherine with a note, "there's more where that came from."

I watched a TV show the other night that showed a bunch of people riding in a boat in Florida. There were dolphins swimming and frolicking on either side of the boat and all I could think about was how much I wanted to see that in person.
Now, not so much.
One more thing. Doug in Sacramento had better hope that song doesn't get stuck in my head because if it does, I'm coming after you.

Re Dolphins:
Just the female dolphins, we assume.

Re Beetles:
Same thing for teenagers.


In that case my name is Jim and I live in West Bismarck, New East South Kennebraska. And I drive a semi-truck for a living, long haul, so I am never home.

Do you suppose the beetles & the dolphins "know" each other?

This study causes some of us to wonder about just how the scientists determined dolphin females even had a clitoris. And maybe more importantly, why they thought we needed to know this bit of information. As ripleysparrow has pointed out, 99.5% of men have no idea what to do with the mythical G spot even if they fumble across it.
