Funniest. Thing. Ever.

It's Friday. You made it. Here's your reward-- the funniest thing I have ever seen on the internet.

I first saw this over ten years ago, and it made me realize that disseminating this clip, from 1970, was reason enough to invent the internet. And since I first saw it, I've pondered two questions:

1. Why did it fall to the Oregon State Highway Commission to get rid of the dead whale?

Oh my God! What a redneck thing to do!

"How do we get rid of that big stinky whale, Billy Bob?"

"I don't know...blow it up with a bunch of dynamyte?"

"Sounds good to me. You get the dynamyte and I'll get the beer."

Blowin' shit up is always such good fun!

I love this video. I show it to students ALL the time!

We had an all day Professional Development thing at Lane. I taught two of the sessions, had lunch, checked out the vendors, and then watched 60 teachers hurl balls at each other in a for-blood game of Dodge Ball. (I would have played too, but I was wearing a skirt and heels since I had been presenting.)
Dodge Ball= Professional Development?

Woohoo, fun for the whole family! They sure don't blow up whales like they used to.

I want to see part 2 where they get one up to the roof of a building and drop it off.

I'd love to hear someone explaining top their insurance guy how their new Cadillac got destroyed by flying whale debris.

I didn't think there was anything lower than whale shit. Now I see the way they dispose of dead whales is lower than whale shit. What were these people thinking? Hilarious!!

OMG! That is hilarious! Obviously these yahoos didn't have much experience in blasting... duh, the dynamite only makes stuff doesn't just vanish you goofballs!

When they blast rock they have giant metal curtains they lay over the site to prevent the flying debris.

I don't know, maybe it's just me, but I'm thinking, dynamite=professional advice. That's just me.

I think the hiway guys get the beach because they have equipment to move snow, therefore sand (?). But what I wonder is WHY do they have authority to use dynamite???

Thanks for the Sunday a.m. laugh!
