Sounds like a description in some random Farker's yearly physical.

It needs a tiny 'No Trespassing' sign.

Whatever they are, it seems they are still in contact with their home planet.

Some spider that's tripping balls is paying homage to Faith No More's "The Real Thing".

First thing I thought of was Bentham's Panopticon.

But I'm weird like that.

Alright, alright, it was me, and I'm more than a little embarrassed by it. I just saw that lovely angelfish and this just shot right out. I swear I meant to clean it up, but I didn't have any old socks laying around.

That's what I thought of too.

Whatever it is will probably lay eggs in your brain too. Stay away from unexplored jungles.

Why not snag one and see what hatches out of it?

I have one of those growing on my inner thigh. Been there a couple weeks, I was getting curious.

Obviously the work of a new species of viral marketing campaign.

Their instinctual behavior leads them to do all sorts of unusual things that are documented and then "reported" on as "news".  Just like the viral UFO sightings about a year ago which, if googled, revealed that the parent company ABC/Disney was producing a full-length feature film based on the old UFO British TV series of the 1970's.

My guess is that this is related to something regarding a new incarnation of the "Land Of The Giants" TV show.

What, like a wiener? Seems like most guys would rather go with something a little more...hefty.

Which ones?  I've used them, remotely, and one locally where I was stationed.

Wouldn't it have been much quicker to just type two words of your sentence into Google, or whatever you kids use these days?
