I'll lead you through an internal experience to call forth your inner dolphin, and then we'll bring our inner dolphin out, so that we're completely immersed in our dolphin aspect… that is us.
—Wait, what?![1]

Dolphins come from Miami, Florida and generally are this annoying gorgeous teal color, which ticks off some cetaceans[wp][Note 1] who happen to live near the dolphins.

[edit] Dolphin woo

This stuff is all horrible, a blight on human existence.[Note 2] It’s so bad I think it actually discourages people from becoming marine biologists. And let’s not even start with dolphin and rainbow tattoos.[Note 3] Or the “very unique” dolphin on the ankle tattoo![Note 4] There is only one cool dolphin tattoo.
—Craig McClain, marine biologist[2] (Google image searches in original[3])

Lots of woo floats around about dolphins, perhaps because they constantly (seem to) smile, perhaps because they sing, or perhaps because they are really the possessors of the truth to the number 42.

The Baiji (Lipotes vexillifer), a Chinese freshwater dolphin now believed to have been delicious.

Patient zero for dolphin woo appears to have been John C. Lilly, who experimented with dolphin communication while on ketamine in between getting the CIA to buy him LSD. Lilly designed a semiaquatic office that a female lab assistant could work in alongside the dolphins they were trying to teach linguistic communication. One of the dolphins eventually made it clear he wanted to have sex with with her. It was discovered the dolphin actually performed much better on the tests when his linguistics teacher sexually satisfied him. Strangely, as soon as word got out about the incident Dr. Lilly's funding and reputation were lost.[4]

Many dolphin supremacists believe they are all intelligent and beautiful and peaceful; however like many humans, dolphins are known to be vicious predatory bastards who will rape a wide assortment of creatures to death with a smile.[5]

At the same time, social and religious conservatives hate dolphins because they are proof that sex for pleasure is completely natural.[citation NOT needed] They are also proof that icky things like masturbation, homosexuality, incest, paedophilia, rape, and inter-species sex are natural too, even in mothers.[6] [7] [8] Although conservatives hating an animal that seemingly goes to war with other dolphins[9] and on humanity's behalf[10] (to the New Agers' consternation) seems a little illogical. Perhaps creationists hate them because they are a constant reminder of mammals' evolutionary adaptability.

[edit] Dolphin facts

Dolphins are vicious assholes who, like humans and house cats, murder other animals for fun as opposed to for food or territory. They have been witnessed bludgeoning their young to death.[11]

Among their wide assortment of assholish behaviors are intense ethnic cleansing campaigns against porpoises.[12] Since porpoises are, among other things, too small to threaten dolphins, it seems dolphins are just sociopaths who know that nothing in the ocean and no human beings outside Japan and Denmark will ever take them to task.

Due to evolution being a cruel bastard, female bottlenose dolphins won't ovulate when rearing young, so male dolphins may murder her baby in order to later rape her.[13] This makes dolphins second in evil only to ducks.

They're also known to hump people.[14][15] Hide yo kids, hide yo wife!

[edit] Ichthyosaurs

Flipper? You've... changed.

Ichthyosaurs are not dolphins, but an excellent example of convergent evolution due to having lived in the same environmental niche, except hundreds of millions of years earlier. They were marine reptiles that were not dinosaurs, but coexisted with them. They died out around 90 million years ago. As colors are usually not preserved in the fossil record, the telltale sign which is which is the direction of the tail fin.
