The Day it Rained Meat in Kentucky

It was a lonely day in Northeast Kentucky, when all of a sudden out of the blue blazes… meat rained from the sky.

In 1876 a shower of three-inch chunks of meat rained down from a clear sky over Olympian Springs, Kentucky. The Louisville Commercial reported that “two gentlemen, who tasted the meat, express the opinion that it was either mutton or venison.” A scientist at the Royal Microscopical Society of Great Britain theorized that buzzards had feasted on dead horses, flown over the town, and vomited.

This comes from a list of strange things that have randomly dropped from the heavens. Also on the list, a 2009 rain of frogs in Japan and a squid that clunked a dude on the head so hard in 1997 that he spend two days in a coma.
