Huge eyeball from unknown creature washes ashore on Florida beach

By David Fleshler, Sun Sentinel

A giant eyeball from a mysterious sea creature washed ashore Wednesday in Pompano Beach.

No one knows what species the huge eyeball came from, but whatever it is, it has blue eyes and has to be big enough to have eyeballs bigger than softballs. Among the possibilities being discussed are a giant squid, some other large fish or a whale or other large marine mammal.

A man spotted the eyeball Wednesday and reported it to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

"He was walking along the beach and found it and thought it looked like something cool," said Carli Segelson, spokeswoman for the commission.

Andrew Zimmerman would eat it. Actually he did. In one show he caught a tuna on a fishing line and ATE the eyeball.

So, a woman gives birth and as she is recovering she asks the doctor how her baby is.
“Well Ihgave some good news and bad news” the doctor says.
“Give me the good news first” she says.
“Well, you just gave birth to a healthy 8 pound eyeball.”
“OMG, what’s the bad news?”
“It’s blind!”

Bada bing. That’s my favorite most disgusting joke.

Yep, I was waiting for someone to post squid. As a native Floridian, many many stories of these guys checking in at the surface and “eying” fishermen!

You think you are on a secluded beach only to discover the ocean staring at you.

How can they not know? Can’t they do a DNA test on it to at least determine order or genus?
