It was my understanding that marine mammals socialized in pods.

Why do dolphins live in a school? What is a dolphin nursery? What is spy-hopping? Find the answers to these ... fascinating life and habits of dolphins and to see how a school works. http://www.heinemannlibrary.com/products/title.asp?id=140344692X But whales do live in pods.

And there was me thinking whales live in oceans.

Teenagers, and possibly teenage whales, live in iPods.

Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
Both "shoal" and "school" are probably "corruptions" of the same word borrowed into English from the language of fishermen in the Low Countries at different times, Middle Low German "schole", Dutch "school".

A pinch of salt may be needed. Modern Dutch fishmongers sell Schol = English plaice
Tong = English sole.

Yes, of course.. But is that only dolphins (and maybe porpoises)? I'm pretty sure that whales have schools.

Is this where someone mentions the University of Whales?...r

Orcas (killer whales) associate in pods too but I suppose they are really very large dophins. I don't really know what the official difference is between a dolphin and a whale and I will let others, more knowledgeable in taxonomy, inform me if they wish.

Only if it's pointed out that one superior fish is always the property of the Monarch, and is therefore found in a Royal College of Sturgeons.

Only if it's pointed out that one superior fish is always the property=20 of the Monarch, and is therefore found in a Royal College of Sturgeons.

So one finds monkfish in a priory, I assume a priori. =20
Robin=20
(BrE)
Herts, England=20

But to fully enjoy monkfish requires the services of a chipmunk.

So all that whale song stuff is really about downloaded music.
