Justin Gregg is a biologist who has a pretty unpopular theory:
Dolphins are dumb.
Say whaaaaa?? We thought it was common knowledge that dolphins are crazy smart!!
Apparently chickens have some of the same behaviors as dolphins, which either means chickens are kinda smart or dolphins are a little on the dumb side.
Gregg wrote a book all about dolphin dumbness, claiming things like how when captured, goldfish will attempt to jump out of their bowl but when dolphins get caught, they never think to just jump out.
Hmm… that's kinda dumb, if true.
Dolphin lovers and scientists everywhere are obviously rushing to the dolphins' defense.
"To put it bluntly, most of that is bullshit."
Ha! What a great counter argument!
Gregg's argument is just to try and get people to stop thinking of dolphins as special, saying:
"Many other species-from sharks to earwigs to rats-lead equally wondrous and worthy lives."
But dolphins are so CUTE!!
Doesn't that count for something??
It should count for everything! It's everything to us!!! LOLz!
We're just gonna go ahead and continue believing dolphins are as smart as they are adorbz.
