Babs and friends are going to pay for disposing of this body.
“The Los Angeles County Department of Beaches and Harbors was not responsible for
disposing of the more than 40-foot body, said Carol Baker, who represents the agency.
“It's on a private beach” controlled by homeowners down to the high tide line and the state
is responsible for the tide lands, Baker said.”
They are easy to remove
The Infamous Exploding Whale
That was disgustingly funny!
Nuke the whales!
Not an issue. There ain’t enough booze on the planet to make Babs even marginally attractive.
Are they sure the wind is blowing in from the ocean?
By Dave Barry (1990)
I am absolutely not making this incident up; in fact I have it all on videotape. The tape is from a local TV news show in Oregon, which sent a reporter out to cover the removal of a 45-foot, eight-ton dead whale that washed up on the beach. The responsibility for getting rid of the carcass was placed upon the Oregon State Highway Division, apparently on the theory that highways and whales are very similar in the sense of being large objects.
So anyway, the highway engineers hit upon the plan remember, I am not making this up of blowing up the whale with dynamite. The thinking here was that the whale would be blown into small pieces, which would be eaten by sea gulls, and that would be that. A textbook whale removal.
So they moved the spectators back up the beach, put a half-ton of dynamite next to the whale and set it off. I am probably not guilty of understatement when I say that what follows, on the videotape, is the most wonderful event in the history of the universe. First you see the whale carcass disappear in a huge blast of smoke and flame. Then you hear the happy spectators shouting Yayy! and Whee! Then, suddenly, the crowds tone changes. You hear a new sound like splud. You hear a womans voice shouting Here come pieces of MY GOD! Something smears the camera lens.
Later, the reporter explains: The humor of the entire situation suddenly gave way to a run for survival as huge chunks of whale blubber fell everywhere. One piece caved in the roof of a car parked more than a quarter of a mile away. Remaining on the beach were several rotting whale sectors the size of condominium units. There was no sign of the sea gulls, who had no doubt permanently relocated in Brazil. This is a very sobering videotape. Here at the institute we watch it often, especially at parties. But this is no time for gaiety. This is a time to get hold of the folks at the Oregon State Highway division and ask them, when they get done cleaning up the beaches, to give us an estimate on the US Capitol.
Why don’t they just move to one of their homes in Aspen or Baja or wherever the current celebrity hotspot is now for a week or two?
Holy hell, I thought that was a pic of Ozzy.
No doubt but when will CARB get involved?
