View Full Version : Exploding Whales
27th September 2002, 09:16
Apparantly this has existed for a long time on the internet- I just discovered it recently so I'll post it just the same.
This is a video of a newscast in Oregon- a giant whale washes up on shore and the city doesn't know what to do with it- so someone gets the great idea to blow it up with dynamite.
Very bad idea- large chunks of whale fly everywhere, one large enough to land and total some poor sap's car.
The best part though is the sounds during the detonation- you hear the crowd's cheer for a second, and then a transition to horror as whale viscera land on them. Sounds something like "AhhhhhhYaaaayyyyyyyyOHmygod!...Damn!"

Just reading that made me crack up. I'd download it, but I'm still on dial-up.
Sounds something like "AhhhhhhYaaaayyyyyyyyOHmygod!...Damn!"
That's enough for me. :D

somebody could crop the first 2 minutes off the start (it's 3mins 30secs long), but it's really funny to see this cloud of smoke, sand and whale guts flying up into the air and landing :)

For those of you unable to download the video, still shots, Dave Barry's (absolutely hilarious) take on the situation, and of course, [url=http://www.perp.com/whale/letters.html]the PC brigade comes out in full force (http://www.perp.com/whale/barry.html).

heh @ whale
thats why you cut the whale in a bunch of places and push it back out to sea, then it will sink. that goes for pretty much large dead beached sea animal
