  • Description

    AN ARCTIC WHITE WHALE HAS TAKEN UP RESIDENCE IN THE RIVER RHINE, AND BECOME SOMETHING OF A NATIONAL HERO IN WEST GERMANY.

    THE SNOW WHITE WHALE HAS TRAVELLED UP THE RHINE AS FAR AS BONN, WHERE CROWDS OF WEST GERMANS TURNED OUT AT THE RIVERSIDE PARLIAMENT BUILDINGS, THE BUNDESHAUS, TO WELCOME HIM. THEY'VE NAMED HIM MOBY DICK, AND EVEN MANAGED TO TURN HIM INTO A POLITICAL ISSUE.

    A ZOO DIRECTOR ARMED WITH NETS AND ANAESTHETIC DARTS ATTEMPTED TO CAPTURE THE UNEXPECTED VISITOR. BUT HE GAVE UP THE HUNT WHEN PUBLIC PROTESTS WERE REINFORCED BY POLITICIANS FIGHTING LOCAL STATE ELECTIONS.

    (MOBY DICK ISN'T THE ONLY AQUATIC INHABITANT OF EUROPE WHO'S TAKEN TO STRAYING FROM HIS HOME WATERS. BATHERS IN THE GULF OF NAPLES HAVE BEEN WARNED THAT A SCHOOL OF SHARKS HAS MADE A RARE APPEARANCE OFF THE COAST.)
