Starry, Starry fish
Portraits hung in empty halls
Frameless heads on nameless walls
With eyes that watch the world and can't forget
Like the strangers that you've met

It amazes me that the guy who wrote American Pie was able to record that song (above) with a straight face.

Oh, and thanks for jamming the song in my brain....

So the next day the starfish is reflecting on his life.

He notices on some day their were a pair of asterick-like tracks in the sand like this..

**********************************************************
**********************************************************

But at the toughest point in his life he sees only one set of prints...

***********************************************************

So the starfish screams WHAT THE FU!?!? at the sky.

And then the clouds part and a booming voice comes from the heavens: "It during the toughest points in your life that I Jesus Christ Superstarfish carried you."

CUE THE ANGELIC CHOIRS!

Every day, an old man walked the beach with a pail, picking up starfish that had been washed in by the tide, and keeping them in the bucket. One day a young boy stopped the old man and asked, "Why do you keep the starfish? It doesn't matter. They will only wash up on the shore again tomorrow." The old man picked a starfish out of his pail, pushed it as far as he could into the bucket, and replied..."It's a terrorist, I tell you!! Look at that dark complexion!! I'm sending a message to these foreigner fish that we will not welcome them, and my battle is never done until they're all locked up!!! We must remain vigilant!!! Why do you hate America?!"

And that, boys and girls, is how a man lost a governor's race to a dead man, and still became attorney general.

A starfish invasion has been reported along the Volusia County shoreline in recent days and there is no explanation why, according to Local 6 News.


I can't help but think that this is tied into that ghost net story from yesterday. They probably heard about it and ran away. Ghosts are scary.

You know, the starfish story is one that a good friend who was an elementary school principal used to tell as a motivational message to educators. He passed away suddenly a few years ago and the story then took on extra meaning.

I have to say, though, that the responses in this thread had me on the floor, laughing.

Thank you.

[...] where it was snatched by the old man's dog frolicking in the waves and quickly torn to pieces. The old man smiled and replied, "It mattered to this one."

Is that a banana in your starfish shorts, or do REALLY like trick or treating?

Swiftfox:

That's the great thing about starfish. If the dog tore it
to five pieces, in a few months there would be five starfish instead of just the pieces. Starfish can do amazing regeneration. That's why they're so interesting.

Here's today's thread-related Usless Fact (SFW).
 
2004-01-15 09:27:03 PM
I'm betting that a cargo ship full of starfish capsized in the gulf stream. There's no other plausible explanation.
 
2004-01-16 12:08:59 AM
I always wondered why starfish never managed to evolve down to little quarter-inch-or-less size to eat those zillions of little teeny colorful clams that quickly burrow back under the sand right where the waves hit.

Well, not always. But I have a couple times.
