In case you missed the news, Keiko ("Free Willy") the whale, and inspiration for too many Clinton jokes died this weekend. CNN reports on the private funeral ceremony:
Keiko, the killer whale star of the "Free Willy" movies, was buried Monday in a snow-bound pasture during the deep darkness of Nordic winter in a ceremony kept secret from the public. [cnn]

It does sound beautiful:
