The Whale-Shaped Man
Is he in his office? asked the whale-shaped man.
Is who is his office? the woman in sparkly pants replied.
That doesn’t clear it up.
The whale-shaped man grimaced. I’m talking about your father.
Oh. Why do you want to see him?
To ask for your hand in marriage.
That’s stupid, the woman laughed.
Why would I marry you? You’re shaped like a whale.
But I love you.
That doesn’t change anything.
So the whale-shaped man left. Inside his office, the woman’s father sighed in relief.
