LOL! I remember Marty on the Tonight Show. Carson was talking to Feldman and seemed very uncomfortable. Marty looked at Johnny and said, “Don’t know which one is looking at you, do you?”

That’s just a “stock” eyeball GIF popped on top of a background HTML Table.

No real edits were made — maybe someone more expert can do what you want...

It wasn’t “Cyclops” Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’ eyeball? Pity. Her looks improved with only one eye.

You’re welcome. I just hope for your sake it really was just a swordfish, and not a one-eyed Cyclops or some other enormous monster-like thing.

Had you heard speculation at the time that it might be from a swordfish, or had you personally come eye-to-eye with one?
