A True Report and Exact Description of a mighty Sea-monster, or Whale, 1617

I couldn't find it, but there's a pamphlet that I've read before about a whale who swam into the Thames and died. This image is far better, however. And I really do believe people would have fought over who got to keep a beached whale carcass. I also like the idea of standing on one.

If I wanted to, I could make a tasteless joke about the huge (erect?) whale penis, maybe punning on the fact that this appears to be a Sperm Whale. I might even suggest he be named "Moby Dick." But I'm not going to make such an indecorous innuendo. Why? Because I'm a fucking lady.

I just wanted to say that this is now my new favorite LOLmanuscript, mainly for the brilliantly written dialogue/caption, but also for the giant whale penis.
