An expert on whales was telling friends about some of the unusual findings he had made.
"For instance," he said, "Some whales can communicate at a distance of 300 miles."
"What on earth would one whale say to another 300 miles away?" asked a sarcastic member of the group.
"I'm not absolutely sure," answered the expert, "but it sounds something like: 'Heeeeeeey! Can you hear me nowwww!?!'"
