The Lightly Braised Turnip web site published an article (complete with photo) positing that a gigantic mutant squid grown to the size of 160 feet due to radioactivity had been discovered on the California coast near Santa Monica:
For the second time in recent months, a giant sea creature has washed ashore in California. First it was a rare oarfish that had grown to a freakish 100-foot length. This time it was a giant squid measuring a whopping 160 feet from head to tentacle tip.
These giants look different but experts believe they share one important commonality: they both come from the waters near the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant in the Futaba District of Japan.
Scientists believe that following the 2011 disaster at the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant an unknown number of sea creatures suffered genetic mutations that triggered uncontrolled growth — or “radioactive gigantism.”
Unfortunately, this cadre of mutant giants seems to be drifting towards the continental U.S. Local officials in Santa Monica, CA — where the creature drifted ashore — tried to calm residents.

Massive, Hairy ‘Globster’ Has Washed Ashore in The Philippines, And Nobody Knows What It Is
A huge shaggy mess of unidentified sea creature has washed up in the Philippines, frightening onlookers who don’t know what to make of the giant, bedraggled carcass the ocean has deposited on their doorstep.
The unspecified ‘sea monster’ has yet to be identified by authorities, so locals have taken to simply calling it the ‘globster’ – a term reserved for unrecognisable blobs of marine life that the sea surrenders to the shore, provoking both horror and wonder in surface dwellers.
In this case, the globster was discovered about 7pm on Friday night along a beach in Oriental Mindoro, a province in the Philippines’ Mimaropa region.
“I couldn’t believe what it was, I’ve never seen anything like it,” local woman Imelda Mariz, who took her children to see the creature, told The Sun.
“In God’s name, I was shocked. The children were scared it was a dead monster. Nobody knows what it is yet.”
Fishery Law Enforcement Officer Vox Krusada said: ”Today we just gathered a samples of it for further analysis.
”For now we can say its 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. And damn 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.”
Villagers flocked to see the 20ft long dead carcass this morning, posing for selfies in Oriental Mindoro province.
Marine workers later arrived to take samples of the currently unidentified creature, which officials believe is some sort of whale.
But some locals are convinced the beast is an ominous sign of an impending disaster.
Resident Tam Maling said: ”An earthquake is heading for Oriental Mindoro. The big globster is a sign of something bad coming. Please pray for us.”
“Globster” is the name given to an unidentified beast.
While it would have been hard to miss the giant 6-metre-long (20 ft) greyish-white carcass resting on their shoreline, something else made the dead creature impossible to avoid: its pungent, rotting smell.
For marine authorities who had to get up close to investigate the unidentified mass, which is covered in a shaggy, dishevelled mop of hair-like strands, the experience wasn’t pleasant.
“Damn it smells awful. It smells like something from another planet,” said fishery law enforcement officer Vox Krusada.
“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.”
