Do You Know The Difference Between Your Junk And Your Rubbish?

20140513-103641.jpg

A flat-bottomed boat,
that oily fibrous tissue
lump of spermaceti*?

OR

Hooey, phooey, cack
tosh and piffled poppycock,
taradiddle, guff!

The ROM carved up the
dead blue whale, but the sperm whale
just floated away

*Below the spermaceti organ lies the “junk” (so-called because many whalers dismissed this part as a worthwhile source of oil), which consists of compartments of spermaceti separated by cartilage. It is analogous to the melon found in other toothed whales.
