Scientists Baffled After Unidentified 'Globster' Creature Washes Ashore In The Philippines

Scientists Baffled After Unidentified 'Globster' Creature Washes Ashore In The Philippines

People in the Philippines have become worried about an impending natural disaster because a giant hairy, unidentified creature has washed up on their shores.

That might seem like a bit of a leap, but it's not every day that a huge disgusting mysterious blob washes up on a nearby beach, so you can forgive them for potentially overreacting.

The 20-foot-long mass of whatever smells about as gross as it looks, and nobody is entirely sure exactly what it is.

People have been arriving from the nearby villages and towns to take photos of it and generally gawp at the weird and wonderful creature.

Marine workers have taken samples so that they can eventually work out what the hell it is. What we know so far is that it is four feet wide at one end and two feet wide at the other, which isn't a great deal when you think about it.

Some people have gone into overdrive though, suggesting that the creature washing up is an omen of some sort of as yet unspecified doom. They think that it warns that a natural disaster such as an earthquake will soon happen in the area.

It is more likely that the creature is a dead and decomposing whale that has simply washed ashore, but why go for the simple option when the mad option is so much fun?

A Fishery Law Enforcement Officer called Vox Krusada (which sounds like a good name for a Grime MC) said: "For now we can say it is a whale, but the exact species is still unknown.

"'The tissue samples are now sent to our lab for DNA analysis. The local government of Gloria will now bury the carcass.

"It smells awful. It smells like something from another planet. I really experienced the full power of its smell because I'm the one who took the tissue samples. I almost puked.

"I felt better after taking a bath but the stench still lingers in my nose."

The term 'globster' applies to basically any ridiculous mass of organic material that washes up on a beach. It's usually something like a whale that has died and floated to shore, but there is a long history of them being confused for sea monsters.

Never any evidence that they cause earthquakes either. Funny, that.
