If I Were In High School

If I were in High School I would definitely be making fun of the following chapter titles from Moby Dick. But, of course, I’m not. I’m a real live, honest to goodness grown-up who would never think of making fun of the following chapter titles.

  • Chapter 10 — A Bosom Friend
  • Chapter 30 — The Pipe
  • Chapter 41 — Moby Dick
  • Chapter 54 — The Town Ho’s Story
  • Chapter 60 — The Line
  • Chapter 63 — The Crotch
  • Chapter 80 — The Nut
  • Chapter 81 — The Pequod Meets The Virgin
  • Chapter 86 — The Tail
  • Chapter 124 — The Needle
  • Chapter 125 — The Log and Line

I’m glad to be a respectable adult who’s above that sort of thing.

  1. HAHA. Funny post. I never realized Moby Dick had so many funny named chapters. Good thing I didn’t have to read it in high school. I would have been cracking up too much to concentrate.

  2. I think Herman intended them exactly the way your readers understood them. After all, he did jump ship to spend several months dallying among Polynesian nymphs and their coconuts. Made a best seller out of it too.

  3. Thanks, Tallfreak. Welcome to Upper Fort Stewart.
