I prefer whale oil.

If we had done with the whale what we've done with corn,
or chicken or pigs or you name it, just in terms of selective
breeding (never mind genetic engineering), we'd never have
bothered with crude oil and the middle east.

Or hell, think tree farms, but with whales.

I think I'm on to something here.
