You've Gotta See This: The Exploding Whale

Okay, maybe this post is less of a "You've Gotta See This" and more of a "You should watch this if you want to, but be aware that the words 'exploding whale' are not a metaphor, and if you're sensitive to the carcasses of large sea mammals being obliterated by dynamite, you might try watching a funny cat video instead."

I stumbled upon this video the other day and wasn't sure what to make of it. It really happened, and it's really quite a treat to watch the humans involved make a decision that most humans today probably wouldn't. What's more funny? Watching them reap the consequences of that decision, blubber style.

If you're squeamish, please reread the first paragraph. The video aired on television in the 70s, so it's not overly graphic, but there's a whale...and it explodes...so, you know, there's flying whale parts everywhere.

Seriously...I've warned you. If you post angry comments, I'm just going sigh and wonder what part of "exploding whale" you didn't understand. Don't be that person, okay?
