Two years ago, I posted about Oregon’s famous exploding whale, complete with video. (If you missed that one, go watch the video now. It’s a classic.) Now it’s time for another.
This video has none of the drama or humor of the Oregon version. It’s short and very much to the point, which is: ICKY. If you have any curiosity about what happens when a decomposing, gas-bloated sperm whale is pierced with a sharp object, wonder no longer. Here it is in 15 seconds of glorious grossness. I feel for the biologist wielding that knife.
You’re welcome for not posting this on Thanksgiving Day.
(Note: If YouTube is blocking your view, try the Daily Mail, which also has more information on where this took place, and why.)
