Eyeball the size of a softball washes up on a Florida Beach



  1. “Eyeball The Size Of A Softball” headline posted directly above a “Halloweeen Appetizers” ad.


    1. When I was a kid I got one of those and my mother said, “You’re not going to be happy until you put someone’s eye out with that thing!” In defense of myself, I never did put out anyone’s eye. But to my mother’s credit, I never was truly happy.

      — I forgot who said that

      1. Sounds like Jean Shepherd, probably from the stories that were the basis for the script of “A Christmas Story”.

  2. This clearly calls for a modern-day Frankenstein to put together a composite creature out of all the stray body parts we find in the ocean. So far, we’ve got one enormous eyeball and about five or six left feet in running shoes – what else do we need?

  3. How could it take them that long to figure out what the eyeball came from?  6 muscle insertion points makes it from a mammal. If its a vascular retina, then its a mammal…  Its probably from a fish, like a marlin as a squid iris is less round.  Ship that eye up to some vision scientists… like us.  :-)

    1.  Oh Bryan, you and your “science” and “figuring things out” and “answering questions.” Can’t you see we are trying to call forth the Elder Gods? Ia! Ia!

    2. I think that’s what’s happening. There seems to be a waiting period though as the scientists who are asked to identify it might be very busy.

  4. huge eyeball = freaky.
    whatever ate thing huge eyeball came from = even freakier

    whenever i swim in the ocean i always think that human kicking legs make a great leviathan lure. :-)

  5. Ah, yes, this seems quite familiar …

    While I was walking down the beach one bright and sunny day,
    I saw a great big wooden box a’floating in the bay.
    I pulled it in and opened it up and much to my surprise,
    Oh, I discovered a (clap – clap clap) right before my eyes.
    Oh, I discovered a (clap – clap clap) right before my eyes.
