Oh yes, the exploding whale of Oregon. I remember that story from the one time my brother found a list of unusual articles on Wikipedia. This is my favourite bit of the whole story:

The explosives-expert veteran's brand-new automobile, purchased during a "Get a Whale of a Deal" promotion in a nearby city, was flattened by a chunk of falling blubber.
The story itself isn't THAT funny because those chunks could've killed someone (from what I've gathered, they didn't), but what were the odds that you buy a car at a promotion called "Get a Whale of a Deal" just to have it flattened by whale flesh, of a whale corpse that you issued to be blown up?
