That guy doesn't seem to suggest that the smell is very nice...hope that's not his moped..hehe

A sperm whale's stomach is going to smell worse then other whales. This whale does not eat plankton like other whales, it eats squid mostly. So, it's stomach contained decomposing squid and other fish, shrimp, crab, etc. EWWW!

That's too funny. What the hell were they thinking, putting it on the back of a truck and driving it through a city?

Doesn't everybody know that you have to puncture the skin of a dead whale (baked potato like) before dragging it through town.

I was just sitting here humming "fish heads "
Leah Thursday Jan 29 07:21 PM
The person in charged of puncturing the whale had obviously failed cooking school. Oops

I've heard people say "bust a gut", but never saw it before.

It's kinda grainy but if you have P2P software (who doesn't?) do a search for whale explosion. In the 60s they figured the best way to remove a dead whale from the beach was to pack a bunch of explosives under it. BOOM. Wait a few seconds. Watch the people run for cover and the cars get smashed by falling blubber! (not to mention the seagulls take off!)

Didn't they warn the beach-goers first? Or didnt the beachers at least notice them packing explosives under a giant whale and realize that they should get the hell out of there? At least I would, but you know how big I am on common sense.

William of Normandy did the same thing when he died. Died of an abcess in his abdomen that got infected. Died in the heat of summer. While they were transporting him to Canterbury, he started to smell pretty bad. When they got him there, he wouldn't fit in the coffin, he'd puffed up so badly from gasses. During the service (which I imagine they tried to keep really short, his stomach exploded.

A few rifle shots before transport would have prevented this tragedy.

Not as good as the Dave Barry version, but very good.

I just saw that movie "War of the Worlds" with Tom Cruise, and all I can say is that I wish Dakota Fanning had been standing 10 feet away from that whale when it did the "Gae Bolga" (Celtic Myth reference) thing. Give that annoying little brat something to scream about.
