White whale

Another bday at the press, for an editor very fond of Melville's here is MD in, um, happier days.

"Clap eye on Captain Ahab, young man, and thou wilt find that he has only one leg."
"What do you mean, sir? Was the other one lost by a whale?"
"Lost by a whale! Young man, come nearer to me: it was devoured, chewed up, CRUNCHED by the monstrousest parmacetty that ever chipped a boat! Ah, ah!"
