Dead Whale Explodes. Sushi Supply Increases. November 19, 2008

You know, I have had some strange experiences in life, witnessed bizzare incidents, and even survived a nasty afterblast from underwhelming Pad Thai.

But I have never experienced or witnessed an exploding whale.



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.

Residents and shop owners wore masks while trying to clean up the spilt blood and entrails.

Many locals were unimpressed.

“What a stinking mess. This blood and other stuff that blew out on the road is disgusting, and the smell is really awful,” a BBC News report quoted one Tainan resident as saying.

I guess some people have never been around after I eat chili. But whatever. Anyway, many other locals decided to turn the carcass into an impromptu tourist attraction.

Once moved to a nearby nature preserve, the male specimen — the largest whale ever recorded in Taiwan — drew the attention of locals because of its large penis, measured at some five feet, the Taipei Times reported.

“More than 100 Tainan city residents, mostly men, have reportedly gone to see the corpse to ‘experience’ the size of its penis,” the newspaper reported.

Sounds like a couple of bosses I’ve known.

Can you imagine being in the car next to that carcass when it assploded? Especially if it was a nice day and your window was down.

Or being behind it in a convertible? That’s a fun conversation with the insurance adjustor.

At first glance I thought the scooter was a piece of the whale. Time for an eye exam.

maybe the whale ate the scooter.

Oh, BiW, you are a lawyer. I’m sure you can come up with something

Wow. I’ve been to Tainan. Dint see no splody whales though.

Although lunch looked mighty suspicious.

Once I drove by a scene were a dumptruck carrying pig carcasses to the rendering plant tipped over and dumped dozens of pigs in an intersection. Yaktastic smell.
