Being a porpoise looks rubbish.
Dolphins look like they have fun. They even look like they seek out fun. Okay, the fixed grins make them seem perpetually happy but let’s be honest - when was the last time you saw a porpoise jumping out of the water or heard a friend gushing about an *amazing* experience seeing porpoises?
There’s good reason that porpoises don’t have the wow factor
of dolphins: and it’s not just that they have bad PR people.
