Dear 100 Hour Board,
Have you ever seen a whale's belly button? I have never seen one before, but I know they must exist.

A: Dear Green spam,

As a matter of fact, yes, I have seen a whale's belly button. I've actualy seen hundreds of them. I used to work at the whale factory, and I was responsible for installing the belly buttons. Unfortunately for most people, the belly buttons are installed before the synthetic skin, so you never get the chance to really see them.

No, in seriousness, whales do have them, but I have not personally seen one. It wouldn't quite be the same as our belly buttons, because our belly buttons also have part of the cord tied in a knot. With mammals born in the wild, their belly button is basically just a scar.
