What good are then, then? I bet they're not even giant or carnivorous. Or naked.

Loudspeakers blaring "There is no reason to panic!" was invented for events like this.

changed tense in the middle of editing...

No need to be tense -- you're among friends.

NMUA: When do we use: "It's time to panic!"?

How is the Diablo Canyon nuclear plant going to update its FaceBook page?!

Nuclear jellyfish. The devil you say.

Misspelled a proper name in there, too ...

HOWever, I wuz most intrigued by one of the people quoted ... "Steve Haddock, a scientist with the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute ..."

A Haddock werks in an aquarium ... hmmmmmmmmm ...

(Also, I've been there, along that stretch of coastline ... werkin' and also as a tourist ... not many times I can say that about stuff here on the DBB ... unless it's talkin' about Nodak, of course ... )

Omni, they will be after they've been through the reactor. (Giant and carnivorous, that is.)

Wasn't there an old Disney movie about this? I think it was called "Song of the Salp."

Ralph, I believe it was a different song, called "Wet Dreams":

...I invited her up to my place for a little midnight bait.
I said, "C'mon baby, it'll only take a few minnows."
She threw me that same old line: "Not tonight, I got a haddock."

And she wasn't kidding, either, cause in came the biggest,
meanest looking haddock I'd ever seen come down the pike.
He was covered with mussels. He came over to me; he said, "Listen, Shrimp.
Don't you come trollin' around here." What a crab.
This guy was steamed. I could see the anchor in his eyes....
