Sean asked how on earth I came across Wholphin. [For those who are interested, a wholphin is the name given to the offspring of bottlenose dolphins and false killer whales, as in this story here.]
In addition, Wholphin is a DVD magazine of unseen films. And part of the McSweeney’s stable, including the books, McSweeney’s magazine and The Believer.
Where else would I find dialogues like this:
LEAKED EXCERPTS FROM
A SCREENPLAY WRITTEN
BY MY GRANDPARENTS IN
AN ATTEMPT TO CASH IN
ON THE SUPERHERO-
BY AARON SPIEWAK

INT. CONDO OF JUSTICEâ€”DAY
(GENIUS MAN and CLASSY LADY are receiving top-secret e-mails from the PRESIDENT, when disaster strikes. A strange noise, then the screen turns black.)
GENIUS MAN: It’s Mr. Internet. He’s locked us out of American Online’s Internets … again!
CLASSY LADY: Blast! If we don’t stop him, he’ll soon gain control of the world’s children, while they’re surfing the World Wide Web!
GENIUS MAN: Off to Mr. Internet’s lair, on Microsoft Computer Island! To the GeniusMobile!
CLASSY LADY: The GeniusMobile has been sounding funny. Did you get it checked like I asked?
GENIUS MAN: I was doing our taxes. I’ll get to it this week. (Grabs keys.)
CLASSY LADY: Remember your glasses this time. You almost ran over Sadie Zuckerman last Friday.
GENIUS MAN: That was because it was about to rain and you were talking to me. (Pats his shirt.) Where are those glasses?
I’ve been a McSweeney’s fan for a long time.Â And of Wholphin from its inception.
