How not to dispose of a whale, - blow it up with 20 cases of dynamite - funny video

In 1970 a 45-foot-long sperm whale washed onshore in Florence, Oregon. People couldn't remember how to dispose of it, so the authorities decided that the whale carcass was too big for burial and that blowing it apart would convert the hulk into smaller, more manageable pieces.

Fine in theory, but they used a full twenty cases of dynamite for the job.

The resulting explosion hurled unwieldy pieces of blubber high into the air, one 300-pound chunk crushing an Oldsmobile 88 when it landed on the roof. This incident was the butt of many jokes for a time, even though it was far from funny.
