Re: Photo: Embalmed Whale Carrier
It turns out that embalming whales and then touring with them was a repeated attraction over many years.

I remember going to see one of these embalmed whales, which was housed in a specially-made semi trailer. That was in the 1960s in my hometown of Hopkinsville, KY. It was in the parking lot of a shopping center, next to a small carnival with rides. I don’t recall any odor, but it’s been a while ago…

And the odor. I guess you'd have to come up with essences of either embalming fluid or decomposing whale to provide in the kit. Phew!
