    Happy Exploding Whale Day!
    Today marks the 35th anniversary of the legendary Exploding Whale. The story goes as follows: On this same day in 1975, news reporter Paul Linnman reported on an unusual story that developed into an even more unusual incident. He traveled to the southern coast of Oregon to report on a forty-five foot, eight ton whale that had washed up on shore. The State Highway Division, who was in charge of disposing of the whale, came up with the solution to blow it up with dynamite.

    The plan didn’t go as smoothly as they’d hoped. After the wild explosion, huge pieces of whale began to fall dangerously onto the curious crowd of spectators, including Linnman.
