“So long, and thanks for all the fish!”

snipshot_e4wsku2xj42.jpgAnd so begins the exodus of Dolphins everywhere in Douglas Adam’s brilliant book, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.  They leave such a remark just before the Earth is demolished to make way for a hyperspatial express route. Let’s hope that Nick Carter won’t have to face such extreme diplomacy issues. The former Backstreet Boy has been pegged by the U.N. to become the next United Nations Special Ambassador for The Year of the Dolphin. Has there ever been a stranger title? From the article, “Nick, whose work will include raising awareness about dolphins, said:

‘People like Bono, Angelina Jolie and Nicole Kidman have inspired me to put my celebrity to good use. I have the advantage of reaching multiple generations to make a difference.'”

Right, because nothing says universal appeal like Nick Carter.

“He added: ‘I am really excited, but also a little nervous about this much responsibility – it is an actual job. There are responsibilities and commitments that I must make to be the voice of dolphins, whales and conservation issues, and the expectations are quite large.'”

Perhaps I’m being a little too hard on Nick. After all, he’s performing a great service here for our oceans. If you see Dolphins packing bags and leaving the planet, however, consider diplomatic relations a failure. Oh, and don’t forget to hook up with someone called Zaphod Beeblebrox.
