"It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye."

"No one knows what it's like to be the bad fish, to be the sad fish, behind blue eye."

"Jokes about an eyeball washing up from the sea? Now that's what I call... *sunglasses* ...aqueous humor."

Let's see... what tags do I put on this post? So wrong and yet so right: fisheye.

Had to be a giant squid, I would think.

People just can't face the evidence for a UFO crashing in the Bermuda Triangle, probably with Elvis on board. Idiots.

Squid: http://bit.ly/SquidEye

Colossal squid have the largest eyes known to exist (even larger than giant squid). This eye is more likely that of a giant squids though, since colossals have only been found in the antarctic.

This here is what you call an anomaly of scale found in nature.

The eyeballs of the fearless, curious, sometimes foolish hummingbird are scale anomalous too but they must be sharp of vision to find their own well concealed nests. And manage other obstacles and tasks such as catching fruit flies, up to 300 a day, or the equivalent in small spiders and such. They're very involved with their environment.

I just made all that shit up. Because it's weird, like a giant eyeball on the beach. But you know what? A friend bought a house in Arizona that came with an orange grove and the orange grove came with hummingbird infestation, and when they're nesting it's impossible to go back there due to fearless hummingbird attacks, but now I realize they're pulling their weight in fruit fly protection.

It's funny until somebody gets their eye poked out.

Then it's still funny, just not around that person.

Fish eyes have a hemispherical lens. They can;t control the shape like squids can, they just move it in and out. I vote for fish eye.

I'm guessing it's a colossal or giant squid eye. I called my marine biology buddy over at the Scripps Institute of Oceanography and he thinks it bears a great resemblance to a squid eye.

Why isn't anyone asking (what I would have thought was) the obvious question? How does the eye survive when the rest of the beast is gone? Wouldn't you expect a soft organ like an eye to go first?

When an old lady with no friends and too many cats dies and the body isn't discovered for a few days, aren't her eyes the first thing (things?) the cats eat? Or is that just an urban legend?

Still, if some squid goes and dies and gets eaten by sharks, would you really expect the sharks to spit out the eyes as inedible? Seems unlikely, unless they taste really nasty.

Probably related to the Bloop.

Per Wikipedia:
The Bloop is the name given to an ultra-low frequency and extremely powerful underwater sound detected by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in 1997. The source of the sound remains unknown.

Dunh, dunh, dunnnnnnnh.

Really really big shark. A great white is 20 feet, a meg can reach 60. And just recently extinct. Only 10,000 years.

And you thought a case of blue balls was bad, back in college...Hah! You don't know...well...you just don't.

Apparently, Squid eyes can detach quite easily.
