There’s stuff in the water!
In the last couple of weeks there’s been some whacky discoveries hauled out of the oceans of the world. Well, not actually hauled as such, but you get the idea I’m sure. Just over a week ago some Japanese fishermen managed to snap his fuji off in the direction of a GIANT FRIGGIN SQUID and now I’m reading that satellites have confirmed sightings of a MYSTERY FRIGGIN GLOW.
Now, feel free to call me odd (I’ve been called worse.. and YES, probably by you!) but this has got me thinking.. “Where’s the sense of wonder gone?”
Why is it that people aren’t totally freaking out by this? It’s been decades since we dismissed these as the sorts of things that drunken sailors wrote ditties about. But low and behold here we have, scientific, irrefutable evidence of (living) giant squid and now photographic proof of lights (the size of Connecticut.. sorry, friggin Connecticut) in the Indian Ocean and no one seems fussed about it!
Which, again, makes me wonder what the hell it would take to get people excited these days? Martians could land in the car park and no-one would care! Big foot could hold a damn press conference and people would still be more interested in Desperate FRIGGIN Housewives.. mind you Marcia Cross > Big Foot, any day!
What’s my point? I guess I don’t have one.. or, am I really saying, no-one would care if I did?
Probably, but who gives a shit.
