Science Gone Mad

This is a very old story indeed, but I was reminded of it today.
Apparently, back in the sixties, there was a lot of reclassification done in biology and botany. You know, like what does a zebra count as, how about a duck billed platypus? Anyway, it turns out that there was a great deal of discussion about the whale. A certain Dr Cook-Moore wanted it reclassified as an insect. Imagine that.
