Sleep Tight


This is a giant isopod.  They can grow upwards of 2 1/2 feet in length, it lives in the deep cold waters of the Atlantic and it feeds on the carcasses of dead whales.

But what it really feeds on...is your soul!!!

That thing is just freaking gross!
If I ever saw that it would be feeding off my dead carcass because I would drop dead right then and there.

icowdave said...

Yeah, I know it's real. The problem is I can't un-see it.

You know, all of a sudden going to the pool instead of the beach doesn't sound so bad...

B.E. Earl said...

Candy - it's a little cute. No it isn't.

Dave - You probably would have run across it somewhere on the internet in the next few days. This fella made recent news when he attached himself to a remote-controlled submersible that was checking out the ocean floor. Came up with the sub, and it was one of the largest specimens ever caught.

be honest... thats just a picture you took of yourself in the mirror, isnt it?

RW said...

It's really good with horseradish shrimp sauce.

B.E. Earl said...

Slyde - I wish I looked that bad-ass!

RW - It is a common dish in Northern Taiwan, or so says the Wiki. Says the meat is similar in taste and texture to crab or lobster meat. I'd imagine it would taste good with a horseradish shrimp sauce.

Hell, that thang looks like good eatin' to me !

Kevin Spencer said...

You know, I think I'm quite alright not knowing what is down in the depths of the ocean. Yep, totally alright.

B.E. Earl said...

Heff - You better get it, before it gets you!

Kevin - there really is some fucked up shit down there.
