What a crazy damned world we live in. Jeez. What were those Taiwanese thinking - hauling a whole dead sperm whale on a truck cross country with no refridgeration. Taiwan in hot all the time. Can you imagine what that neighborhood must have smelled like when the rotting whale exploded? Taiwan stinks to begin with. If you can't laugh at this one, you can't laugh at all.
For the record, I have eaten whale meat a couple of times. When it is cooked, it is pretty good - like prime beef, but more flavorfull. When raw it is really tough and stinky. I don't agree with the harvesting of whales in modern times, but it is what we had for dinner, so I ate it rather than let it go to waste.
