Big Willie

Long before the Cape Cod Bear, there was a "Gay Leviathan" that had "gained national prominence" hanging out around Ptown. "On this day over sixty years ago the world was being regaled with tales of our gay whale which had been frolicking about the Cape tip for a couple years now. In one previous visit, "Willie the whale" as he was dubbed, had smashed a dingy tossing a young Provincetown lad on the leviathan's back where he held on for a brief whale of a ride." [Cape Cod Today]
