eeky whale explosion

nice present for my birthday. NOT

Sperm whale explodes in Tainan City; Blood and guts of 17-meter long 50-ton mammal splatter sidewalks, automobiles parked nearbycheck out the yummy whale guts!

“A dead sperm whale being transported through Tainan City on its way to a research station suddenly exploded yesterday, splattering cars and shops with blood and guts.
Certified by authorities as the largest beached whale on record in Taiwan, the 17-meter 50-ton carcass was being transported by a flat-bed trailer-truck to a special research location after National Cheng Kung University officials and security guards refused to allow the whale on campus.


The news also showed one section of the street along with several parked automobiles and pedestrian walkways covered in red with copious amounts of splattered whale blood.

Lying on the trailer-truck was the dead whale – underbelly exposed with a large elongated tear where the biological gaseous blowout took place. Besides the shocking red bloody mess, large piles of whale intestines and guts were strewn along the road, leaving an unpleasant and ghastly scene for startled residents.”

thanks stacey for the link. at least they didn’t intentionally blow up the whale like the clever americans in 1970 LMAO!

  1. There is always something new to find out here (haha, wait till everyone hears about this =P ). I just want to wish a happy belated birthday. *belatedbday hugs*
    As for that whale -That- could not have been very nice.. ergh.. eww…*barfs* I feel sorry for the poor residents because that sounds -extremely- nasty.
    Your previous entry, “freeing sex slaves” was very insightful, I’ve read that human (specially children) traffic-ing is the third largest crime (after drug and weapons smuggling) worldwide. It’s extremely tragic, these tales of people who have lived all of their lives this way, who don’t/can’t/feel as if they don’t belong anywhere else. It is very sickening indeed.

  2. Oh my, you have a pictures of it. I read about this on RBJ forums, but this is the first time I’ve seen a picture of it.
    I don’t know if the link you provided for the 1970 incident is the same as the video I saw at another website( The howeird one seems to be bombarded right now. Then again, how many videos of exploding whales can there be?
    Anyway, my favorite line from that video, a tongue twister! Those cleaver reporters…. “shortly to become land-blubber newsman — with a blast blasted blubber beyond all believable bounds.” What the…? =P
