Capt. Paddock sailed the Nantucket area in the early 1800s. This happens to be a true story, too. He threw a very sharp spear into a whale. Although, the whale was wounded, he was not mortally so and disappeared with his spear. Fifteen years later, he would throw another spear into a whale only to discover that this whale still had lodged inside his big body the very spear he lost 15 years earlier. It was in fact, the very same whale, speared by the very same man!
