This was about the funniest thing I have ever seen. I appreciate your posting it, it is a great stress relief mechanism and self esteem booster (seeing as how we all feel that we would never do anything that stupid).
Thanks again.

Rarely do I laugh out loud at internet material. I was chuckling when I read the part about the HALF TON of dynamite the engineers used to blow up the carcass. Anyone with any kind of experience with explosives–even a good history with 4th of July fireworks–should know that a half ton of dynamite is so ridiculous! Very entertaining, in its truthfulness.

i have to agree with some of you on one point: only in america! if that had happened here, some fisherman would have claimed the carcass and had it mounted in his livingroom! “Yep i caught it when i was ice fishing up in Duluth….”

interesting story. all you animal lovers need to remember that it happened over 30 years ago! they weren’t slaughtering some helpless creature, they were removing a dead animal! not a particular method i would have used, but nevertheless i’m not surprised. USA motto: blow it up! it’s funny people admit it!

It’s really inhumane for people to come here and deliberately misconstrue what the site is about and then wish that everyone who gets a chuckle out of it dies a horrible death and is blown up after being left to rot on the beach for several days, stinking up the city.

I’m actually on here researching for my Drama class. (I’m a junior)And I couldn’t believe how crazy this all is! To all you people who have complained about it- what do you think of being buried or cremeated(spelling?) after you are dead???

“Oh, we just couldn’t bury dear Aunt Judis, why to leave her in that cold hard ground to rot and be worm food!!!I’M going to be gutted out and stuffed when I die so nothing that cruel can EVER happen to me!”

Rose,

I am sure you wouldn’t have minded if they had trucked it up to your front yard and dumped it. Rather than try to deal with the problem. Decomposing Whales, I would assume smell rather bad.. But I am sure you would put up with the smell for a few months wouldnt you. :) And all the flies that it would have created wouldn’t bother you at all. Disease risk to children? I know this because you value all of gods creatures, i can see that by your post. :) However I doubt the local residents would agree with you.

THE WHALE WAS DEAD FOR HEAVENS SAKE. HAVE YOU EVER SEEN ANYTHING THAT HAS BEEN DEAD FOR SEVERAL DAYS? THEY BLOTE TO HUGE SIZES. YOU CANNOT MOVE SOMETHING OF THIS SIZE OUT TO SEA IF YOU TRIED TO IT WOULD BLOW UP ON ITS OWN NOT TO THE EXTENT OF THE EXPLOSION BUT GOD FORBID THE SMELL. STOP CRYING OVER THIS AND DROPPING THESE HATE THINGS. DID YOU THINK THEY WERE GOING TO PUT THE DEAD CARCUS IN AN AQUARIUM OR MAYBE THE NEAREST GRAVEYARD GET REAL

Yes, whales may lovely and all the rest of it, but its probably made more people laugh than any other whale in history!!! (except the fictional one in hitchhikers). It also proves however daft you are there’s a job out there somewhere for you (esp. if you don’t mind being hit with rotton whale meat!!!)

I think it was Wes Borg who said that America is the only country which went from Barbarism to Decadence without an interluding period of civilization.
Whatever happened to common sense?? I am mighty scared about the fact that you are the major military power on this planet. I would feel better if it were – Italy!
Hasn’t anybody told them that before you blow up ANYTHING, you have to precicely calculate the radius, taking into consideration the material being exploded as well as the explosive? It should have been done with a series of small subsequent explosions – but still, I am not sure that gulls will eat dead whale carcass seasoned with TNT. Just take a big big knife and cut it up into little pieces (it is cheaper too)!

Interesting record of a “creative” solution to a problem. If that happens when they blow up a stinking whale carcass how wide do they make the zone when they blow up a rock and fling stones thru the air?. Almost as bad as dropping a whale from the stratosphere as in Hitch Hikers Guide TT Galaxy. And to all the weeping teenage (mentally) female rotten carcase lovers – get a life. I wouldn’t want the thing to die but die it did and lumbered Oregon with it’s carcass. I suppose it could have been eaten (snoek was eaten in the UK during the war) How long before it would have rotted to bones?

I worked for a whole year in a quarry where we used dynamite regulary for blowing up stones. The problem is always a question of what quentity and where you place the explosive. Dead Whalews could be ‘fragmented into small pieces with a lot of small explosions, sequentially organized, not all at the same time. This could be a cheap system to ‘mince a dead whale’. Using only one charge is rathe silly and even infantile. I bet they enjoyed it a lot. In my opinion dead whales should ‘feed the sea’ and not be buried in the earth.

How wonderfully American !! Never ask ‘how to get this problem solved ?’, only ‘how much dynamite to use ?’
The only ingredient missing here was the flying whale, so my special thanks must go to the laywer above on the feedback page.

I can only thank you for bringing this to our attention. Granted we don’t get too many whales coming up the Hudson River, but as a member of the local Emergency Response Team I feel it is best to be prepared.
I have forwarded this to everyone in our county and advised them there will be a “pop” quiz at our next meeting.
Thanks for making our county safe from acts such as this by our renowned Highway officials.
God Bless.

(This entry was submitted by the webmaster on behalf of the author.)

My roommate, Greg Foote and I skipped class at Univ of Oregon to go to the beach. Upon arrival, we saw the commotion and stopped. They were using (I believe) a Cat to push sand against the whale after placing the dynamite. They made us move to what at the time appeared to be a safe distance away. When the whale blew, my first sight was a red blur. A second later, the biggest chunk went out into the ocean and made a loud splash and noise. Within ten seconds of the blast we all looked up and saw a sky full of black peices of whale seemingly in slow motion. Gradually, they started falling down all around us. I remember running around with my neck strained upward trying to dodge the big pieces that were making large craters and tremendous thuds. After everyone survived, (That seemed hard to believe) we all kind of relaxed and talked with the common bond of survival!

After about a minute, (Again, I could be wrong on this timing)we heard a loud crash coming from the parking area. We all rushed over to see a Cadillac convertable with smashed windshield, dashboard, and seats. It was parked right next to my red VW. I remember the owner saying “how a I going to explain this to my insurance company” and sympathetically laughing. At the same time, red, greasy sand that smelled like rotten whale was raining down. We jumped in my car and drove the 4-5 miles to town to wash the car – and us! The windshied kept getting greasy and red so we had to continually use the wipers and washers. We dumped a whole bottle of Brute Cologne on our heads on the trip to the gas station. It has been nice seeing your website as many people have doubted this story over the years.

This a great web site! When I frist heard of this stroy. I thought it was a urban legend. After seeing the tape (at your web site) I could not belive it to be true. However here a few “after” facts of the situation or whatever you want call it:

1. The car that was crushed was a 1970 Oldsmobile 98. The
owner (named Walt) was paid by the state of Oregon two days
later for full retail price for his car.

2. The Hiway department offical was promonted six months later to manage the Medford office of the ODOT,

3. The tail of the Infamous whale was found in a empty field a mile from the blast site.

Ah yes – I can remember it! At the time, I was the Commanding Officer of an Army EOD (Bomb Disposal) Team in Arkansas and since it was rare for all but the largest cities to have people trained to work with explosives, we (Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Teams) were often called on by the local Law Enforcement people to help out/advise in large scale demo jobs.

Obviously (and wisely!), the Navy Team responsible for that stretch of beach decided *not* to get directly involved in the operation. But about a month or so later, we got the word (via snail mail – no Internet or PCs in those days) about the debacle and were ‘advised’ by Higher higher *not* to get involved in any “public relations” job that might wind up being seriously embarassing!

A good site and pretty well organized. Ferget the gadflys and bad mouthers. They don’t amount to a hill of beans and they don’t mean diddly.

I have lived in this area since 1978, remember the more successful disposition of the 41 whales in ’79, and enjoy the story about the earlier ‘learning experience’. It happened before I got here, as did the earlier Florence claim to fame [as reported by the wire services and Playboy Magazine] when they, accidently, I guess, banned sex…
