    It’s the Yip-yip Martians from Sesame Street.

    “But would you believe they identified it by its gonads?”

    It was subsquently identified as the biologist’s friend Dave. The biologist said he’d be missed.

    It’s a couple of gallons of refrigerated Hershey’s syrup. Just ask Bart Sloane. He’s a clever man.

    Note the hex grid all over it from about 2.00. It’s clearly some kind of game board, perhaps lost from the giant squid civilisation…

  5. Dub Google says:

    I half expected it to form the shape of a human face… a la The Abyss

  6. Beanolini says:

    would you believe they identified it by its gonads

    Well, yes. Examination of the sex organs is the easiest way of identifying vast numbers of organisms.

    Shoggoth found.  Run.

     By their fruits ye shall know them.

    Why yes, this might possibly ring a bell for me: http://boingboing.net/2012/05/09/weird-sea-creature-on-video.html

  10. How great would it be the have “identified by his gonads” appear in your obituary‽

     “identified by his gonads” 
    Well, how else would you identify a giant scrotum? 

  12. zotlerg says:

    It’s a “Deepstaria Enigmatica” – Google it.
    They found out a couple of weeks ago.
    Job done - NEXT! : )

    Shame there’s no audio. I wanted to hear some good “omg wtf ?!?!?”.

    When boat fishing in the Puget Sound in 1984, I hooked this… thing.  It had a single-bone mantle that resembled nothing more than a very large fishhook made of bone.  It was surrounded by gelatinous material that was an obvious body of sorts.  To this day, I still don’t know what it was, but it was a living organism.  Still stranger than anything Hollywood has envisioned.

  15. I find this hard to masterbate to.

    I’m pretty sure that’s the plastic bag from ‘American Beauty.’

    (And it looks to be badly in need of a haemorrhoidectomy.)

    The yrr!

    How long has it been since this thing worked on Thundarr?

  20. Palomino says:

    The hexagonal pattern gives it away. It’s some kind of fabric, what  it’s made of I don’t know, but it’s wrapped (entangled)  around a fish. 

  21. Palomino says:

    It should be edited down to a few seconds, blurry, with someone screaming “Did you get it? Did you see it!” with a violent camera shake added. Then this would go viral and then  investigated by Monster Hunters. Sometimes Knowing takes the thrill  out of it.
