More Exploding Whale

Neatorama reader Chris saw the Infamous Exploding Whale clip and pointed this link out: a 56-foot long whale that exploded on the streets of Tainan, Taiwan, in 2004, while being transported on a flatbed truck.

Residents of Tainan learned a lesson in whale biology after the decomposing remains of a 60-ton sperm whale exploded on a busy street, showering nearby cars and shops with blood and organs and stopping traffic for hours.

The 56-foot-long whale had been on a truck headed for a necropsy by researchers, when gases from internal decay caused its entrails to explode in the southern city of Tainan.

Link - Thanks Chris!

I love the look on that guy's face. I can imagine him thinking, "Oh, SHIIIIIIIIT!"

BTW, how weird would it be to be driving behind a dead whale? Even one that hasn't exploded?
