FLORENCE, Ore — On November 9, 1970, a 45-foot sperm whale had washed up on the beach near Florence, but as KATU reporter Paul Linnman noted at the time, it later became "a stinking whale of a problem."
Three days later, on November 12, the dead whale exploded into history with what has been described as the first-ever viral news story.

Awesome! Totally AWESOME!!
That is too funny to be true but was! Ah, the 70’s. Like the other video shows, the guts would bloat and if in the water, it would mostly float (why dead bodies float unless weighed down. Eh, Buffalo Bill?). The amount of pressure is impressive!
The problem is that they did not use a shaped charge but stuck a bunch of boxes on one side. Implosion would probably have been the better option!
Anyone notice the lack of PETA activists??!
Ah, the 70’s!!
