      There was a guy who DID that, right?  He basically dragged a waterproof soundboard with him SCUBA diving & would record, remix, & playback what the dolphins were “saying” to him.

    I think they’re really playing the glass bead game.

    “I’ve told those assholes a hundred times that my name is click-click-whistle-click-shriek-pop-whistle-click, but for some reason they still insist on calling me ‘Flipper.’”

    Anyone made any progress on those whale songs yet?  I mean time is running out people.

     I don’t know about dolphins, but if I say someone’s name when they aren’t around, I am talking ABOUT them. So I think a simpler conclusion would be, “Cetaceans gots Gossip.”

    Hmm, my research was suggesting they were saying something like, “So long, and thanks for all the fish.”
