    Default Canadian Town Politely Waits for Dead Whale to Explode

    Canadian Town Politely Waits for Dead Whale to Explode



    Dennis Mersereau



    S
    EXPAND

    Residents of Trout River, Newfoundland are anxiously waiting for a beached blue whale to explode after it washed ashore last week. The whale is believed to have died as a result of heavy sea ice a few weeks ago.

    Butler is worried about what could happen if the carcass remains grounded near the town's historic wooden boardwalk. "It's only a matter of time — as the weather warms up, it's only going to worse," she said.

    Exploding whales are not a new phenomenon — the gasses that build up inside of decomposing whale carcasses are known to build up enough pressure to pop through the blubber and rain whale bits on the newly-squeamish people unfortunate enough to be caught downstream.

    The people of Newfoundland kindly set up a website called HasTheWhaleExplodedYet.com to inform the world of the fate of the bloated carcass. So far, it hasn't exploded. Yet.

    Apparently the gasses are decreasing so it's unlikely the whale is going to explode.
