A Whale of Tale on 'Ellen'On the latest episode of 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated), Ellen DeGeneres talked to special guest Jodie Nelson, who had... quite an unusual story to tell. Nelson recently paddled in the ocean from Catalina to Dana Point in California -- a nine hour journey that had only previously been done by three others. But during her trip, Nelson was joined by a whale, who stayed with her for nearly two hours!

Watch the video after the jump.On the latest episode of 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated), Ellen DeGeneres talked to special guest Jodie Nelson, who had... quite an unusual story to tell. Nelson recently paddled in the ocean from Catalina to Dana Point in California -- a nine hour journey that had only previously been done by three others. But during her trip, Nelson was joined by a whale, who stayed with her for nearly two hours!

"I felt like I was on a giant dog walk with a whale," said Nelson. "He wanted, like, all my attention... he kept just rolling over." So, a little known fact is that 30-foot whales really like hanging out with people and swimming with them.

Another little known fact that came up during the interview: DeGeneres apparently knows how to talk to whales. "I speak 'whale,'" said the host. But she refused to do it in front of the audience. "It's hard on your throat; I can't do it right now," she said. Aw! We wanted to see DeGeneres do some whale-talk!
