TODAY IN HISTORY: THE EXPLODING WHALE
November 12, 1970
The crew of Apollo 13 were resting comfortably at home after a successful splashdown in the Pacific Ocean …The Beatles had decided to call it quits… future Baseball Hall of Fame pitcher Bob Gibson had just won his second NL Cy Young Award…. and 6 cents would buy a United States postage Stamp.
THEN – It happened.
THE EXPLODING WHALE.
IF you are not familiar with THE exploding whale… I would suggest that you NOT watch this while eating your lunch. You might choke to death from laughing.
(and you might vomit a little)
