Do you want to be a Whale or a Mermaid?

This is probably your basic urban legend/spam email but I received it from a friend and I Have to Share:

> Recently, in a large city, a poster featuring a young, thin and tan woman was placed
> in the window of a gym. It said, “This summer, do you want to be a mermaid or a whale?”
>> A middle-aged woman, whose physical characteristics did not match those of the woman on the poster,
> responded publicly to the question posed by the gym.
>> To Whom It May Concern,
> Whales are always surrounded by friends (dolphins, sea lions, curious humans.)
> > They have an active sex life, get pregnant and have adorable baby whales. They have a
> wonderful time with dolphins stuffing themselves with shrimp.
> > They play and swim in the seas, seeing wonderful places like Patagonia, the Bering Sea and
> the coral reefs of Polynesia .
> > Whales are wonderful singers and have even recorded CDs.
> They are incredible creatures and virtually have no predators other than humans.
> > They are loved, protected and admired by almost everyone in the world.
>> Mermaids don’t exist. If they did exist, they would be lining up outside the offices of psychoanalysts
> due to identity crisis. Fish or human?
> > They don’t have a sex life because they kill men who get close to them, not to mention
> how could they have sex? Just look at them … where is IT?
> > Therefore, they don’t have kids either.

> Not to mention, who wants to get close to a girl who smells like a fish store?
>> The choice is perfectly clear to me: I want to be a whale.
>> P.S. We are in an age when media puts into our heads the idea that only skinny people are beautiful, but I prefer
> to enjoy an ice cream with my kids, a good dinner with a man who makes me shiver, and a piece of chocolate with
> my friends.
> > With time, we gain weight because we accumulate so much information and wisdom in our heads that when there is no more room,
> it distributes out to the rest of our bodies. So we aren’t heavy, we are enormously cultured, educated and happy.
> Beginning today, when I look at my butt in the mirror I will think, ??Good grief, look how smart I am!??
