Rare, 4-foot-wide jellyfish spotted on Florida beach

Pink Meanie tartar? Maybe when it's medium-well.

Why would anyone put spots on a jellyfish? It seems like a stupid thing to do.

This sounds like a nightmare! When I go to the beach I'm the one sitting on the sand waving at everybody else who is stupid enough to get in the water. If I want to swim I'll go to a nice, heavily chlorinated, pool.

Right-on nursecindy. Jellyfish, stingrays, barracuda, sharks, riptides, red tides, sand fleas, parking fees, toxic green algae, etc....

Just grab a comfy cabana poolside with a pina colada & play some Parrot Head music!


pharmaross--Love your suggestion. Who wouldn't want to be in a poolside recliner under a palm tree playing some Garth Brooks:

"bring me two pina coladas
one for each hand
let's set sail with Captain Morgan
and never leave dry land"

But here I am stuck in Southern New Mexico with a foot of snow on the ground. And nothing but political and lawyer ads on TV. I may consider going outside, make snow angels and drink beer.
Lots of beers.

Le Pet - Did you forget Joe Namath's ads?

Do jellyfish ever swim with peanut butter fish?

PINK Meanies? Next they'll be telling us the submarine is green.

It's not rare enough

Sandwich with peanut butter and jelly fish is my childhood favourite.

Le Pet-New Mexico is a beautiful Land of Enchantment. I was based in Las Cruces for Eli Lilly peddling psych meds to behavioral and mental health institutions in Silver City to Clovis, Ruidoso to Socorro. I miss those Hatch chiles & SW cuisine & margaritas. Long drive to a beach though.

pharmaross--Yes, usually we have wonderful weather here in Roswell, Alien Capitol of the World. But when a blue norther blows in, remember to bring in your brass monkeys. Supposed to be in the 50's tomorrow so no lasting problems. I worked in mental hospitals in Denver for over seven years while going to college. I eventually became cured and went into mineral exploration and still consult. I just helped put together a copper/gold project near Lordsburg, NM near the old ghost town of Shakespeare. Lot's of interesting history in this state.

@LePet - so can we call you Nurse Ratchet?

@pogo, this is the worst of the four-year cycle, with political ads AND Joe Namath running at the same time. I record everything on DVR and watch it later so I can fast-forward through all the commercials.

Qaz--- I did get to know a Nurse Wrench, but she was into Metric spacial therapy and I wasn't so we never connected.

I really never enjoyed dressing up in women's clothing and hanging around in bars...but if they're buying?

Le Pet- if you've never been, try La Posta De Mesilla in Old Town Mesilla for top tier Mexican fare and State Line BBQ just south of you in El Paso. It doesn't get any better.

I love this blog. It's been a pretty rough week.

Pharma, will have to make the drive to try those establishments if the pandemic ever ends. Meanwhile, did anyone call the Oregon DOT for help on disposing of the giant jellyfish?

Here in Florida, we subcontract our marine life beach removal tasks to this specialty force from Reno, Nevada...


This is the esteemed consultant that this nation desperately needs:


@MOTW - Sending some TLC your way. 😘
