Does anyone but me see the CAT FACE? It is just behind the seaweed "hair"? See it??? Scrunched shut eyes, cute nose sort of like a "Y" with the tail of the Y going into its mouth?? The tongue hanging out, sandy and dirty, it has no ears to speak of,but it is still cute. Then next to my cat is a sort of political cartoon style guy, and some other odd face next to that. My brain is working overtime. Sorry, once I start seeing faces, well I'm doomed...

As Tom and Bobbette Clapsadle of Waterford strolled along the water at Ocean Beach Park Sunday afternoon with their two sons, they spotted an almost alien-looking corpse lying amongst the seaweed.

Stories and photos about that discovery appea... [More]

I think this is a hoax!! If you read the entire article, no-one besides the people who 'found' it have actually seen the carcass, they have just seen photos of it. The 'skull' is far to clean, the teeth all perfectly in place, the rest of the 'body' is still all full fleshy, yet the skull has NO skin or flesh on it what so ever!! The skull certainly doesn't look like it's been 'rotting away'. I think someone found the body of a turtle or some other fleshy creature, then put the skull at the top of it, then drapped the seaweed over the skull then took the picture!! IF YOU found some weird creat... [More]

A thorough analysis would show that in as much as science can prove, its a sloth who drowned after colliding with a weather balloon.

It looks very, very much like a seal, we get seal carcasses wash up alot around here and in various states of decomposition and they can look a little weird.
