Nuke the Whales

I just sent this link to Dave Barry
2002-10-06 03:32:55 PM  
Bah, they were too far. I wanted to see the camera be smeared with whale guts...
2002-10-06 03:32:57 PM  
Damn, that was funny.

Two Anna Nicole articles in two days? Is Drew being paid by the E! network and didn't tell us or what?
2002-10-06 03:35:09 PM  
For those not familiar with Barry- He wrote an article on the exploding whale years ago, and still gets mail from people who want to see him write an article about it.
2002-10-06 03:36:19 PM  
there is no link to download the video. i've clicked the entire damn page. nothing.
2002-10-06 03:37:15 PM  
worst news commentary ever: "they not only had a WHALE of a problem, it was a stinking whale of a problem yuk yuk yuk" followed by "...they soon became 'land blubbers yuk yuk'"

How would I ever find these classics without Fark?
2002-10-06 03:40:03 PM  

Did good ol' Dave write the story before he boinked that high school student or after?
2002-10-06 03:41:34 PM

or copy paste:
2002-10-06 03:42:02 PM

2002-10-06 03:42:27 PM  
Shave the whales. Surprised those sissy nancy-boys at PETA haven't decried the demolition of that poor little sea creature...Off to get a hamburger now.

2002-10-06 03:49:57 PM  
HEhehehehe, this is just a classic movie.. yay
2002-10-06 03:51:58 PM  
Seth, I saw it too. And yesterday I saw posts appear lower in the list out of nowhere.
2002-10-06 03:52:59 PM  
"the blast blasted blubber beyond all believable bounds..."

What a loser.
2002-10-06 03:58:28 PM  
carrion is excellent
2002-10-06 03:58:36 PM  
Damn blinking text! Urge to kill rising...
2002-10-06 04:03:56 PM  
Ahh yes, the movie that brought to its knees a couple years ago, when hotlinked to me. Los Bastardos cost me $400 to get my site turned back on...
2002-10-06 04:08:44 PM  
I should send this to Dave Barry.
2002-10-06 04:11:50 PM  
FunkLord use Mozilla (or Opera).

Both much more configurable (sp?) than IE/NS
2002-10-06 04:17:44 PM  
They used 1/2 ton of dynamite and it only did that much damage. Better grab the C4.
2002-10-06 04:19:13 PM  
So, infected a 1/4 mile radius area with stinky rotten whale flesh...

Or, they could've simply dragged the thing out to sea a few miles and let go (maybe put some lead inside first).

Or, dragged out to sea, *then* blow the thing to bits...

Or, pump full of petrol and set on fire...

etc, etc etc... (you get the idea)
2002-10-06 04:20:50 PM  

I do use opera! Now to go look at those settings...

Here's a site that supports the exploding whale cause:
2002-10-06 06:21:02 PM  
Site can't load, I believe it is farked
2002-10-06 06:28:54 PM  
We put that movie in as an Easter Egg in a game we did for the Discovery Channel. I got my ass chewed when it came out, but it was worth it!
2002-10-06 08:01:31 PM  
When did Dave Barry bang a highschooler?
2002-10-06 08:43:32 PM

Yeah, what are you talking about Otisburg?
2002-10-06 11:36:07 PM

What, again? Isn't this the third time in 2 1/2 years this link has been on Fark?
2002-10-08 07:01:35 AM  
Pretty amusing. Dead whale + clueless civil servants + dynamite = hilarity.

Out of curiosity, I went looking around to see when this happened. November 12, 1970
