GI Joe Was Swimming Under Water

Gothamist has a roundup of reporting (and video, and pictures, one of which you see here) on the latest unfortunate marine mammal to venture into the Gowanus.  Let's hope this dolphin fares better than some of his predecessors (RIP Sludgie the whale).  And for that matter RIP Bob Guskind.  The local scene has never been the same without The Gowanus Lounge, which was everything a local blog should be.

I haven't thought about Bob in a while, but Sludgie the Whale brought me back.  He was a damn fine reporter and a hell of a nice guy.

The question is: will anyone recognize the reference in the title?  This poor dolphin faces graver threats than GI Joe.
