In 1970 They Blew Up A Dead Whale In South Carolina And It Was Spectacular

IN 1970, over in Florence, South Carolina, they found a great big whale on their beach.

A dead whale. A dead, stinking, rotting whale.

So what’s the best way to get rid? Cut it up and feed it to the sea? Don’t be stupid. That would take far too long. And besides, that’s positively unAmerican.

The best way to dispose of a stinking cadaver is to pack it with dynamite and blow the thing to kingdom come!

What could possibly go wrong? Well, watch this video and find out.
