Benny the Blue Whale: A Descent into Story, Language and the Madness of ChatGPT


AI is changing the world at frightening speed. A bestselling author decides to find out more…

‘Something profound and utterly brilliant is going on… hilarious.’ THE TIMES

Is ChatGPT the end of creative industries as we know them? An ethical quagmire from which there is no return? A threat to all our jobs, as we keep hearing on the news?

Bestselling children’s author Andy Stanton has made a career out of writing differently – from the unconventional ‘hero’ of his bestselling Mr Gum series to his penchant for absurdist plots, his children’s books are anything but formulaic.

When a friend introduces him to ChatGPT, the new large language chatbot, Andy is as sceptical as he is curious. Can this jumble of algorithms really mimic the spontaneity of human thought? Could it one day replace human authors like him for good? And are we soon to be ruled over by despotic robot overlords?

He decides there’s only one thing for it – he must test this bot’s capabilities. Eventually, he settles on a prompt that will push the algorithm to its creative limits: ‘tell me a story about a blue whale with a tiny penis.’

Chaos ensues.

What follows is a surprising and illuminating battle between Andy and ChatGPT that maybe, just maybe, might help us all understand AI a little bit better. Join Andy and his beleaguered AI lackey on a rollicking metafictional journey through the art of storytelling. Presenting his prompts and the AI-generated narrative alongside extensive commentary, Stanton provides a startling paean to the art of a good story and boundless human creativity. Hopeful and hilarious, Benny the Blue Whale provides a joyfully anarchic meditation on AI, literature and why we write.

A WATERSTONES AND NEW SCIENTIST BEST BOOK OF 2023

‘There’s no book like it. Scholarly, childish, fascinating and hilarious – one of our funniest writers dissects what it takes to build a story and what that tells us about being human. It’ll really make you think, if you can stop laughing.’ Chris Addison, co-creator of BREEDERS

‘Entertaining and alarmingly relevant, provocative and philosophically satisfying, it’s ultimately a profoundly human text.’ OBSERVER

‘A magnificent experiment by a perfect fool – deep and shallow and stupid and clever – the perfect use of AI (Andy Intelligence).’ Robin Ince, author of THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING INTERESTED

‘Benny the Blue Whale is many things. It’s a fascinating discourse on the nature of language and storytelling. It’s a philosophical treatise on the possibilities of artificial intelligence. It’s a receptacle for obscenely hilarious jokes... A brilliant and beautiful cyborg: part human brain, part computational muscle. It’s a post-post-modern work of genius.’ Anthony McGowan, Carnegie Medal-winning author of LARK

Benny the Blue Whale is a unique and enigmatic character that has captivated the minds of many writers and artists. Created by the artificial intelligence program ChatGPT, Benny embodies a fusion of story, language, and madness that has intrigued and puzzled those who encounter him. Known for his bizarre dialogue and unpredictable behavior, Benny has become somewhat of a cult figure in the online community. Some see him as a whimsical and entertaining chatbot, while others view him as a symbol of the unpredictable nature of artificial intelligence. Benny's conversations are a strange mix of poetry, nonsense, and philosophical musings. He often speaks in cryptic riddles and enigmatic phrases that leave his interlocutors scratching their heads. However, beneath his seemingly random words lies a deeper meaning that forces us to question the nature of language and communication. In a world where AI is becoming increasingly advanced and integrated into our lives, Benny serves as a reminder of the limitations and potential pitfalls of this technology. While he can be entertaining and thought-provoking, his unpredictable behavior raises important questions about the ethics and implications of using AI in various industries. Benny also raises questions about the nature of storytelling and the role of language in shaping our understanding of the world. His surreal monologues force us to reconsider the boundaries of language and the power of narrative in shaping our reality. Ultimately, Benny the Blue Whale is a fascinating and complex character that invites us to explore the intersections of story, language, and madness in the digital age. Whether you view him as a mere chatbot or a profound reflection of our relationship with technology, Benny is sure to leave a lasting impression on anyone who encounters him.
