As we near the birthday of the famed writer H. P. Lovecraft, who wrote such lines as “In his house at R’lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming”, it seems only appropriate that divers off the coast of a small town in Turkey found a mysterious blob. Its giant size and strange gelatinous texture had the divers scratching their heads as to what it might be. According to Deep Sea News:
“Dr. Michael Vecchione of the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History was the first to propose a suggestion. Dr. Vecchione is an expert on squid, and to him this giant sphere looks like a huge squid egg mass, and it’s the largest he’s ever seen. In fact, egg masses like this may be floating off many major coasts, not just Turkey’s. But what kind of squid, specifically, could produce a mass this big?”
Maybe this guy?
Also if you haven’t seen yet, my board game website, Gameosity, is doing a whole Cthulhu month to honor Lovecraft’s big day.
