Did you hear about the story how Americans got rid of a whale that had washed on the beach in 1970... they called in the Highway patrol who then proceeded to load the carcass with explosives. and finally after half a ton of dynamite and curious bunch of onlookers who had come see the famous explosive whale who is about to be blown away from the beach.. There was also a film crew present pointing their hungry cameras on the whale as the countdown started.. in when the big moment came, everyone could instantly agree that the highway patrol men had delivered, but shortly after when the crowds had been showered with rotting whale meat, insides and fat the vomiting started.. not only the onlookers were given the taste of the ol’whale but their vehicles were ruined by falling chunks of blubber..pretty nasty looking and sounding business that disposing of a whale in America..:)#

Here is the link for those interested in looking at the real thing themselves…

I saw it on tv - what a mess! I'm surprised nobody guessed beforehand what would happen.
