I'm not talking about live whales. I'm not talking about great white whales. I'm not even talking about zombie whales. (Zombie whales probably wouldn't be that dangerous anyway - I mean, what are they going to do? "I will filter feed on your braaaaaains..."? But I digress.)
No, I'm talking about the under-appreciated, and extremely gross dangers of dead whales. Take, for example, this striking (and extremely gross) video of a man cutting open a dead whale (which is, in case I haven't mentioned this, absolutely disgusting and not for the weak of stomach):
That's right, dead whales can actually explode. (There's a quick discussion of the science behind it right here.) Sometimes, though...
Sometimes they get a little help. Or a lot of help. With... um... with dynamite.
I suppose you could consider that a Cautionary Tale... or maybe just a cautionary tail.
