Associated Press This Thursday, Oct. 11, 2012 photo made available by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission shows a giant eyeball from a mysterious sea creature that washed ashore and was found by a man walking the beach in Pompano Beach, Fla. on Wednesday. No one knows what species the huge blue eyeball came from. The eyeball will be sent to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute in St. Petersburg, FL.
This better not be some bullshit hoax, like some asshole from that “Monster Man” show on the SYFY channel dropped this huge eyeball off on the beach to promote a new season of the show.
It also better not be “That’s the eye of a Blue Marlin, they are very common in this area, shark must have eaten one and its eye popped out.”
I want some Cryptozoology creepy shit. Loch Ness Monster eyeball discovered in Florida, the species turns out to be intelligent, huge schools of them take to the offensive and start tipping over boats.
For once in my life, this better be both awesome and the real deal, I want answers and I want them this afternoon!
UPDATE: Word that a giant eyeball washed up on a South Florida beach has created a buzz on the Internet and in the marine biology community. The huge, blue eyeball may have come from a deep sea squid or a large sword fish, said Heather Bracken-Grissom, an assistant professor in the marine science program at Florida International University in Miami.
This scientist is totally killing my buzz, I’m still hoping for a headline reading “Megaladon, prehistoric killing machine, LIVES!”
