Don't eat the whale!

There was a little fish shop in Iceland (I believe it was called 'The Sea Baron') that served fresh fish and also served whale shish kabob. Don't eat whale!

Here's a Radiolab episode on animal minds from you should hear (here). It's a really moving tale about some divers who try to rescue a whale off of the coast of California.

When I lived in Norway as a kid we accidentally ate whale. My mother got a package of frozen meat labeled (something like) 'hval mitt', and she mistranslated it as 'half meat'. Then she bought it, cooked it, and fed it to her family. Go figure.
