Here's the anniversary that you've been wanting to celebrate all year long, because it is the only one that has an exploding whale! Now someone told us this happened on this date back in 1970. But then we took a little trip to Google town and then to Wikipedia to discover that we have been lied to. The dynamite to blow up the whale happened in November of 1970, so we are a little late. But when talking about exploding whales, you really can't be late, or talk about exploding whales too much. Especially when there is footage of the chunks almost killing people. This is what makes America, and exploding whales so great. This one always makes us smile!
