Don't be a blubbering idot.

The following is a partial transcript from a 1970's era attempt at environmental remediation:

"Our cameras stopped rolling immediatelt after the blast. The humor of the entire situation suddenly gave way to a run for survival as huge chunks of whale blubber fell everywhere. Pieces of meat passed high over our heads as others were falling at our feet. The dunes were rapidly evacuated as spectators escaped the falling debris and the overwhelming smell."

A parked car over a quarter of a mile from the blast site was the target of one large chunck, the passenger compartment literally smashed."

Fortunately no human was hit as badly as the car, however, everyone on the scene was covered with small particles of the dead whale."

As for the success of the effort: the seagulls that were supposed to clean things up were nowhere in sight either scared away by the explosion or kept away by the smell..."

...It might be concluded that should a whale ever wash ashore in lane county again, those in charge will not only remember what to do they'll certainly remember what NOT to do."

Now watch the video and be amused.
