Giant Mystery Eyeball Washes Up On Florida Beach

October 12, 2012


RETROACTIVE WARNING: Giant mystery eyeball. Also, potential Slimer tattoo.

A man in Florida stumbled across this giant mysterious eyeball while metal-detecting for buried pirate treasure or whatever, and now scientists are hard at work trying to determine where it came from. My guess is the fish with only one eye now.

Some have suggested that the eye came from a monster fish, a giant squid or even a whale.

"The primary suspect right now is that it would be a large fish," she said. Among the possibilities are a swordfish, or a tuna, or some sort of deep-water fish species.

Marine biologists couldn't immediately identify which species of sea creature would be associated with the eye, but researchers will use genetic testing if necessary to solve the mystery, said Carli Segelson, a spokeswoman for the commission. "I shouldn't say this, but they may be able to eyeball it," she told me today.

LOL @ "may be able to eyeball it." Carli you need to get out of marine biology and pursue a career in standup comedy STAT. I know you weren't fishing for compliments, but I think you'd be a whale of a good time. I tried doing live comedy once but I clammed up and froze. Literally, I couldn't move a mussel. "Just stop." I'm gonna go take a long hot shower and try to figure out where I went wrong in life.

Thanks to Dizzle, Hugh Jass, reaper and Catherine, who usually don't pick up eyeballs they find on the beach. It's not a bad rule to live by.
