Holy crap. That's a toy?!?! Christ, if I had been given one of those as a child I'd be TERRIFIED of that thing. I'd always expect to see it hovering over my bed whenever I'd wake up in the middle of the night.

I have to admit, I thought it was organic. It looks like some mutated root system that has degraded into partial rot, as we all do when our lives are ended and our bodies handed over to corruption.

The Isle of the Deep is really not a single creature but a colony
of thousands of individual tubules, an aquatic vector of the Mind Worm
which terrorizes Planet's continents. Over its lifetime certain tubules
secrete a tough, gluelike substance which hardens to form the
characteristic shell that floats the colony and creates the appearance
of a rogue island.

We had this growing on our cedar trees growing up. I never had any idea what the hell it was but I always played with it. Sorta slimy and hand staining but it smells nice.

It's The Funk.

You see, the funk is a living creature. It's about the size of a medicine ball, but covered in teats. Came from another planet. Landed on Bootsy Collins' house.

Back then Bootsy was just a simple farmer, but he took one look at all those moldy titties and lost his mind. He began to milk the funk. Made himself a funk shake. He began to feel fizzy inside. He found he could see around corners.

Suddenly, he passed out. But when he came to, baby, he was slappin' a bass guitar fast and loose like some sort of delirious funky priest. Two months later, he was world famous with his band Parliament, and everybody wanted a piece of the funk. Rick Wakeman, even the Bee Gees.

One day, Parliament were traveling on the mothership, foolin' around with the funk, when George Clinton kicked the funk clean overboard. And that was July the 2nd, 1979, "the day the funk died"...

Two weeks later, I found the funk, in bed with a conga eel. At first I thought it was a sea anenome, but under closer inspection I realized it was a funky ball of tits from outer space. I offered to take him back to Parliament, but he said he was done with dat shiat, and that they never listened to him anyway, and were only interested in his funky bra juice.

'Green Pirate' is such a wonderful strategy. By the time anyone else has a decent sized navy, you've got Demon Boil Isles swimming around to ruin their day. Battleship and transport all in one.

A tentacle ball has eighty-seven appendages. Now, an autistic child has a one-track mind. For instance, the autistic child is coming after you with the idea of tearing your head off. You hold up the tentacle ball, and all of a sudden, he has eighty-seven points of interest. He loses his train of thought; this agitates him. He takes his wrath out on the tentacle ball. His mind now has been completely distracted from his original thought: "Eat the man in the white pants."
