What do you do when a whale washes ashore?
You blow it up with dynomite.
Watch the video here.
The explosion occurs around the 1:55 mark.
Below is a small story about the blast.Â
The resulting explosion was caught on film by television photographer Doug Brazil for a story reported by news reporter Paul Linnman for KATU-TV in Portland, OR. In his voiceover, Linnman joked that “land-lubber newsmen” became “land-blubber newsmen”, for “the blast blasted blubber beyond all believable bounds.”The explosion caused large pieces of blubber to land quite some distance away from the beach, resulting in a smashed car. The explosion did not disintegrate most of the whale, which remained on the beach for the Oregon Highway Division workers to clear away.
