You call those puns? You guys are merely pupils. My puns are far cornea.

Clearly you are the most humourous person in this thread. Conegratulations.

ritchards:
Solved! It's a sword fish eye.

I just like the idea that scientists had a 'team swordfish' going on twitter. :p I love the internet.

Well that's clearly just a coverup. It's obviously some sort of cyclops that 'The Man' doesn't want us knowing about. They'll be telling us it's a weather balloon next! ;)

You mean this?:

Joke's on you when someone takes it to a demon altar and summons the eye of cthulhu.

My Nan had a dog called Scruffy. Beautiful dog he was.

Just looks like a big fish eye. It's cool though.

its just another thing to put into the worlds attic (please get the reference)

It's a giant squid eye. I'm more curious as to how it came out in such a nearly perfect fashion, unless they cut away some of the viscera that was around it when found. Because otherwise I cant imagine how it could come away with so little damage if torn out in a fight.

All the eye puns are already taken.
Eye have no idea what to say, eye wonder if it tastes good with bacon?

Well that was anticlimactic . Nothing to see here folks, mystery solved , go home and get some sleep

Call Me Jose:
Wow I lived in Pompano Beach, what a crazy small world!

Even crazier if it belonged to your goldfish or something.

Huh, it kinda looks like those "evil eye" charms that you see from some middle eastern culture.

that isn't exactly comforting to know that there's a swordfish large enough to impale a yacht out there

and that it lacks depth perception

Hmm, it's either a squid or a swordfish.

EDIT; Just actually read the first page. I was right lol, swordfish.

CardinalPiggles:
Isn't it possible squids are evolving to have bones? I'm not sure why they would but hey.

MetallicaRulez0:
This is why I don't swim in the ocean. There are things THAT big out there. No thanks. Call me paranoid, don't care. I'm paranoid and safely on shore.

I'd much rather stay on shore with you to be honest, after being nipped by a crab or whatever it was.

Well, technically it is possible, but it wont happen. Squids and octopuses actually rely on an entirely different system of movement that wouldn't work with a skeleton made of bone. Not having bones also give them a great ability to hide under rocks and squeeze together and it also allows them to survive in great depths. Technically it's not impossible, but practically it is.

Well, seeing this is confirmed to be a swordfish all the mystery is gone. Still pretty cool though.

I know what species it comes from...

It's the eye of the legendary thunder squid. A bio from my steam friend will explain more.

Strange that it washed up now though...

*lights his cigar*

I'll have to dive deeper into this matter.

Mystery solved.

You mean this?:

Oh wow, that's like if Pixar decided to start making movies based on my darkest nightmares! O_o

Is it even real?
Is there some sort of proof that this thing isn't some sort of hoax?
These weird things that just happen to "wash up onto shores" usually are hoaxes.

That is impressive. Intrigued to find out what it was from.

Saw that coming.

This is clearly one of Cthulhu's many, many eye balls. It only makes sense. And we're all doomed!! He's waking up!

I was thinking squid, but swordfish sounds right.

I'm just surprised nothing ate the eye; I thought fish eyes were supposed to be delicious to all manner of sea critters.
Well, odd exceptions happen I suppose.

FINALLY. It took way too long for someone to make some not completely, shamefully lazy eye puns! Thank you, good sir.

IA! IA!

Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn!

Eyedentification?...

Probably the eye from a large Blue Fin Tuna

Able Seacat:
The marine biologists shouldn't argue, there's no 'eye' in team.

The sea is one scary place

it truely is a scary place... everytime i think of it.. that we only have explored like 90-95% of the ocean.. really gets me everytime :P imagine the creatures we havent even seen yet D: and that eye D: must belong to something..BIG

Well look at that, we found Kopikatsu's missing eye! Someone go tell him!

I could have sworn I heard the exact opposite, that we have only explored about 5% of the ocean depths.

ahhh my bad :P was meant to be 90-95% UNexplored xD doh!

Notice the mention of whales in the article. Then play Dishonored and notice their obsession with whales.

Then laugh at me if it turns out that I am wrong.

Looks like that thing out of Portal, or Portal 2, or whichever the hell it is. Space-thing.
