Finally, a sponge with a backbone.

Probably it's a former Democrat.

"We were just amazed. No one had ever seen this animal with their own eyes before,"

Were these "meat-eating sponges" the previously unaccounted for part of the 47% of the electorate that threw the election to Obama?

Monte Rey is Spanish for King's Mountain. The Spanish landed there in the 1770s and established the Spanish mission chain started by Fr Juneperro Serra, who was later made the first American Saint.

A deep ocean trench comes up to the coastline at Monterey Bay. There is no continental shelf there. But there were once gadzillions of sardines in the sea there that Chinese fishermen caught for canning along Cannery Row.

Two miles south are Pebble Beach Golf course and Carmel by the Sea.

Really? A story about an amazing and weird new carnivorous sponge found in the deep sea, and you can only think to make sophomoric political quips?

You people really need to get a life...and an appreciation for the wild, weird array of it that surrounds us!

Call it the Liberace.

RC, let us have a little catharsis. I got a chuckle out of EDH's quip.

"The swollen balls at the tip of the harp sponge's upright branches hold the sperm packets."

Heh heh.

Spongeworthy.

Is this and the just previous post a subtle homage to "The Me Blog"?
