The new shark that looks oddly human.



The Iceland catshark.

Reminds me of... who? Ringo?

Looks like a muppet. An evil, evil muppet.

Goblin sharks are probably the most bizarre looking sharks, with their Alien-like retractable jaws.
I got a picture of one up in my room.
Is it Shark Week yet?

SHARK!

A Carville relative?

Scott said...

This looks like a candidate for a FARK.com photoshop competition!

Where is Chip Ahoy when you need him? Calling Chip Ahoy...

Looks like a still picture from the set of "Where the Wild Things Are."

Looks like the Dorkfish that Bill Engvall describes.

Jimmy Durante?

Way before my time but for some reason I recall it.

Well, not for some reason. Look at that thing!

Triumph the Comic Insult Shark.

Drew W said...

Maybe this newly-discovered shark was the illicit spawn of Ringo and this.

Ann: If you this shark looks human you clearly hang around with the wrong people! F

LordSomber said...

You're gonna need a bigger blog.

The original Kilroy!

Lem said...

According to my president - that's a shallow banker.

Penny said...

Love the Ringo comparison, but that was a caricature drawing. See what you think about this CAT named Lance.

Great name for a great specimen.

Anyone else dreading Cedarford's contribution to this thread?

Phallic competition for Joe the Camel.

Looks like the end result of a mackerel that just swam thru the Ohio sized oil spill off LA.

vw: subveris -- sounds oddly descriptive of certain posters...

edutcher said...

Why does the word "photoshop" leap to mind?

Pete the Streak said...

Barney, from the Simpsons.

Scott M said...

Was he like that BEFORE he swam into the oil slick?

I don't think I've ever bought into any of the more popular conspiracy theories over the years, (except the fact that the Colonel puts addictive substances in his chicken, WHICH MAKES YOU CRAVE IT FORTNIGHTLY). Come to think of it, I don't really buy into any conspiracy theories that I know of.

This oil slick thing, though, is making the old spider sense tingle.

garage mahal said...

No, the mackerel looked like this before he swam through the slick.

Mr. Bingley said...

Don Knots

HKatz said...

It sort of is Ringo-ish, if Ringo's head ever becomes prepared and preserved like one of those leathery shrunken heads from the Amazon.

Joe said...

The Blue Meenie from "The Yellow Submarine?"

blogantine said...

Yasser Arafat?

MadisonMan said...

george Hamilton's skin.

Tibore said...

Yasser Arafat?"


Winner.

Ann Althouse said...

@Joe You mean Glovie.

That was Meade's initial association too.

LordSomber said...

If you're gonna guess Don Knotts then you gotta throw in Mick Jagger.

I thought perhaps we might have a thread today on the big oil spill in the gulf, and how Obama is clearly to blame. The Right seems to be at hull crush depth avoiding detection. Odd, they always seem to have an opinion on drilling for oil.

p.t. fogger said...

That's funny - first thing I thought of was "Glovie" from Yellow Submarine, too. And that flick's from way before my time.

EDH said...

If you're gonna guess Don Knotts then you gotta throw in Mick Jagger.

Or, Mr. Limpet.

But that's kind of cheating.

Lem said...

I agree.. its Arafat.

SMGalbraith said...

Geez, what a cheesy remark.

Because: (1) it's on a fun post about some odd-looking shark and (2) everybody plays the finger-pointing game nowadays.


Deduct 10 points for lack of originality and another 10 for cheap attempt at politics on a light-hearted thread.

David said...

It's better looking than Ringo.

"Yasser Arafat?"

Yes, that's it. Glad you did not say Mu**********ed.

Bill said...

IT'S A TRAP!!!

MarAkin said...

looks like a jew.

Screw you, MarAkin.

On second thought, it looks like a catcher's mitt ... with a pointing finger.

David said...

This is supposedly one of 38 new species found around Iceland and Greenland in a recent survey and of course: Rising ocean temperatures due to global warming—which could be drawing unfamiliar fishes to the region—and increased deep-sea fishing may be responsible for the spike in fresh fish faces seen off Greenland . . . .

Strange thing is, another source says this fish was first discovered in 1922, well before the birth of Yasser Arafat.

Since there may not be a "Cafe" post for general topics today, I'll make an OT post.

Today marks the 35th anniversary of the fall of Saigon and those awful pictures of folks praying for a seat on one of the last birds off the top of the Embassy.

Here's to the unnumbered dead in the reeducation camps and the killing fields.

Here's to absent companions

JAL said...

Thank you Drill SGT.

Irene said...

Thanks also, Drill SGT. My parents made it out on one of the last trains heading out of post-WWII Lithuania, so I have learned what that means.

Drill, baby, drill!
Spill, baby, spill!

I want to see the offshore windfarm. But they might have a windspill, and thousands of cubic feet of wind might end up on shore.

EnigmatiCore said...

I'll bite, even though I am not sure how well I fit the definition of 'the right', although I guess from the perspective of you two mostly everyone is to the right.

Spills suck. Spills happen. When one buys into drilling, one should be factoring into their thoughts the consequences of accidents that will occur.

Drilling seems to have lower costs, factoring in everything, than not drilling. Ergo, a spill that we knew was going to happen in some sort at some time does not change the support for drilling.
