I would love to take full credit for the spot, unfortunately I saw it referenced online elsewhere back when it was published. Three years on I still find it just as funny.

That photo was pinched from a site referencing the article, I couldn't link to the real article as the time is subscription only now I believe.

Quote:
Believe it or not, how dolphins can swim so fast has been something of a riddle for researchers since the 1930s.

But a new study has laid to rest one of the most vexing questions plaguing scientists about dolphin speed: How can their muscles produce enough thrust for such high speeds?

"It's been controversial for a while," said Frank Fish, a marine biologist at West Chester University in Pennsylvania.

Now he has the answer: Bottlenose dolphins can produce the power they need to swim circles around whatever they wish by using their powerful tails, new experiments show.

MK Dons have a goalkeeper called Cody Cropper, who played a bit of a shocker last night.
