“...the size of a mango...”

A strange use of comparison.
How big is a mango?
Not something I commonly compare things to...

What a miserable existence. Way down there, so deep and dark and cold...

On the other hand, they never have to watch any of those asinine Flo progressive commercials...
Every cloud has a silver lining!

There are probably even bigger ones deeper down, particularly into the lower regions of the crust.

Rather than imagining life coming into existence in the upper reaches of the ocean, or filtering in from space, it may have simply oozed out from below and worked it's way to the top of the crust.

That would 1/17th the size of a Durian. Who knew liberals could survive so deep?
