A man in Queensland's Sunshine Coast in Australia recently put a beached jellyfish in a bag and took it to police believing it was a breast implant and possible evidence of a drowning or murder. It wasn't through, it was just a dead jellyfish. No word how many times this guy has called the police thinking there was a shootout next door when somebody was playing Call Of Duty.
"Investigations revealed what police suspected... the item was indeed a jellyfish."
Colin Sparkes, from Surf Life Saving Queensland, said the discovery was most likely a blubber jellyfish.
He said the species was commonly found in Queensland waters and its sting was irritating, but not dangerous.
"[The] tentacles have been knocked off by wave action or eaten by fish," he said of the one handed to police.
I still think this guy should get some sort of dum-dum do-gooder award. Like, hey, you were trying. I'm not saying give him the key to the city, but you could give him a key to like, I dunno, a bike lock or something. Just give him a key, any key. Here -- take this one. "Is this what I think it is?" Depends, what do you think it is? "The key...to your heart?" Mhmm! "It says 'Please tolerate my video game addiction.'" Yeah that's been a problem in the past.
Thanks to Thedirtofluck, who once took a seashell to a lifeguard concerned that Ariel might have lost half her top.
