Well, it does use a Whale in the PSAs about the ORCA card.  It means, "One 
Regional Card for All."

BTW, my ex, had a very similar experience to that of you (Kay).  She 
actually waited for an hour at the West Lake Center in the big line, then 
had to go to 2nd and jackson.  She got there and waited for probably two 
hours before she was even able to get a couple of the questions she had 
answered.
