Oh of course, it was right in front of us the whole time!


#3

How many people did they find inside it?


#4

It’s fangtoothed snake-eels all the way down.


#5

Heresy!

That’s clearly a sandworm from Saturn…

#7

Salty nope rope. Got it.


#8

Not only am I never going into the ocean again, I want to take back every other time I’ve ever gone into the ocean.


#9

Pretty sure that’s a tsuchinoko.

(Wikipedia has it classified as a youkai, but I’m pretty sure it’s a cryptid.)


#10

Yea.

This was in Texas right? I’m starting to think that maybe we should build a wall, but perhaps we should focus on a sea wall.

That thing is fucking creepy.

I sometimes wonder, when our descendants meet real aliens, if anything will horrify us more then the things evolution coughed up on Earth. Luckily my imagination isn’t specific enough to answer.


#12

Its amazing that after a couple of billion years of evolution our planet still contains species which are not particularly good hunters. They just cruise around eating whatever they find and somehow survive.


#13

Hey, you’ve met my cousin Jerry? Say hello to him next time you see him.


#14

Maybe. Or maybe one of the dolphins’ secret biosoldiers went berserk before the transformation could be completed, and made an end run at mankind, their eternal enemy.


#15

Shit I thought maybe Jimmy Hoffa finally washed up.

#17

Could it be…? Nessie?


#18

Build a wall, but make Texas and Florida on the other side…


#19

Yeah, build the Ike Dike.

The poor thing, now an ignominious spectacle.
