Warning, Contents Under Pressure: Dead Whale Explosion

December 2, 2013


PROTIP: Not on your lunch break.

Seen here looking how I felt after Thanksgiving, a dead sperm whale's stomach explodes as some poor bastard pokes it with a knife. The explosion was caused by the build-up of gases in the stomach after the whale died (of natural causes). Can you imagine what that smelled like? Red Lobster!

Keeping for the video, in regular speed and slow motion.

Thanks to Robert, Chase, jim, Sydney and Eric, who all have normal names for once. And to Whale Boombastic, who absolutely does not.

    That's the poor bastard's job. I think that tool is the industry standard for popping whales too. He needs a longer handle though.

    Poor bastard? I'd do this job for free, how awesome would it be getting a call from work saying "hey can you run down here a make a whale explode?"

    Your present job has got to be pretty shitty when 'whale-exploder' qualifies as an awesome upgrade.
