Whales are some of the most amazing creatures on Earth. Sadly, like all other things, they eventually die. When a whale dies, its carcass typically gets devoured by fellow ocean-dwellers and recycled back into the ecosystem. However, when a whale gets stuck on a beach and dies on land, its carcass can quickly become a health and safety hazard for everyone in the area.
The traditional solution to this problem is to cut the carcass up into smaller pieces and dispose of it that way. There's just one catch. By the time people get around to chopping up a dead whale, tons of gas has already built up in the carcass...and all that gas has to escape somehow.

If that looked disgusting, just imagine how bad it must have smelled. Actually...no. Don't do that. Forget I said anything.
