dear ellen

a gang of indian sea orcas rape a caribbean ugly fish. the ugly fish gives birth. after five years the baby looks exactly like an ugly fish but it is the size of an orca. seaworld captures the giant ugly fish and trains it do flips and to bellyslide onto land. the new show is called 'shamu's forgotten brother.' it has narration that teaches the seaworld audience that ugly things have feelings too. one day during a show the crowd begins to chant 'fug-ly, fug-ly, fug-ly.' this becomes a tradition and soon seaworld changes the narration to include a dance where the audience is encouraged to chant 'fug-ly, fug-ly, fug-ly' in syncopation with arm movements.
