Signs of the Fishpocalypse

And here we thought it would be frogs:

An estimated one million fish turned up dead Tuesday in a Southern California marina, creating a floating feast for pelicans, gulls and other sea life and a stinky mess for harbor authorities.

The sardines apparently depleted the water of oxygen and suffocated after getting lost in the marina, officials said.

But here’s our favorite part:

“All indications are it’s a naturally occurring event,” said Andrew Hughan, a California Fish and Game spokesman at the scene.

Yes, because here in California, a million dead fish wash ashore all the time.

you can actually smell that pic right on the screen

I don’t think it’s that boring in Sandy Eggo.

@Right Reverend Benedick:

I didnt see a suggestion that it was a mass suicide.

but . . .

@Capt Howdy: Southern California. Enough to make anyone off themself.

@Right Reverend Benedick: It’s 72 degrees right now in Santa Monica, clear skies, mild surf. No fish kills, although the grunion get frisky every now and then.

The jealousy on this thread is palpable. I will have to go for a bike ride on the beach in my riding shorts later to clear my head.

@Capt Howdy: Jeffrey Wright springs to mind. Excellent actor, similar build and complexion, close in age, but his face just isn’t right, plus he has a receding hairline.

A film about Sarah Palin? WTF? Julie Taymor is free. (P.S. Julianne Moore can’t act)
