man had always assumed

that he was more intelligent than dolphins

because he had achieved so much

- the wheel,

new york,

wars and so on

- while all the dolphins had ever done

was muck about in the water

having a good time.



the dolphins had always believed

that they were far more intelligent than man

- for precisely the same reasons.

curiously enough,

the dolphins had long known

of the impending destruction

of the of the planet Earth

and had made many attempts

to alert mankind to the danger;

but most of their communications

were misinterpreted...
