I've been around the Net for almost 15 years now, and I've seen some really strange things posted online. Then I ran across this site about an exploding whale and just had to check it out. Not the wierdest thing I've seen online, but it ranks up there with the good ones.

According to the Urban Legends Reference Pages, the incident actually happened.

Download the video and watch. Particularly amusing is the newscaster's description of the aftermath. I can't believe nobody thought about that before they started...
