What’s big, fuzzy, and mysteriously appears after a torrential rain? Don’t know? Neither do residents of New York’s Carroll Gardens, who are scratching their heads trying to figure out just what the bizarre thing is, and where it came from.
The hairy blob was discovered on Friday by creeped out pedestrians on Court St. who said the unexplained “creature” smelled like a sea-animal. Photographer Keith Thompson realized that the hairball’s sudden appearance was stirring up some weird conversation among the locals, and wisely rushed out to snap a few shots before it disappeared.
“I saw this thing!”, exclaimed Kyle Grunph on Carroll Gardens Patch. “Was making my way to Grocer’s when I saw this hairy blob laying there. It smelled to high heaven (almost fishy) and as I got closer to inspect it I swear that I saw it move.”
Grunph went on to wonder if the odd blob might have been something strange from the ocean, but if that’s the case, how in the world did it end up next to a tree in New York City?
It wouldn’t be the first time a “monster blob” mysteriously appeared in the middle of a major metropolitan area. Just over two weeks ago, a huge, smelly ooze sprung from the cracks in a street in China, and caused quite a commotion before it finally disappeared back into the ground.
So, what do you think of the mysterious monster blob? Is it a confused sea creature far from home? A monstrous being that fell from the skies during a particularly bad rain? Or just a really big cheerleader’s wayward pom-poms? Share your thoughts with me on Facebook, on twitter @WhoForted, or in the comments below!
