Feb 11, 2009: Stuffed Skate
Skates, a fish in the Ray family, are bottom dwellers, which is much deeper than Cellar dwellers.

Hey...that must be the one that cleaned up after our boat capsized!
xoxoxoBruce Wednesday Feb 11 01:18 AM
OK, so tell us, alka seltzer or condom?
Aliantha Wednesday Feb 11 01:20 AM
Well it's hard to know since it happened on a camping trip.
Leokins Wednesday Feb 11 01:24 AM
wonder if the camera still works... maybe theres an sd card with pictures
Trilby Wednesday Feb 11 02:39 AM
Um...I'm gonna spew. One more reason to hate the creatures of the sea.* YICK.
ZenGum Wednesday Feb 11 06:11 AM
So, it ate a teenager who was out for a party...
SPUCK Wednesday Feb 11 06:28 AM
No, A japanese tourist!
ZenGum Wednesday Feb 11 06:47 AM
I'd expect more Hello Kitty merchandise. And more than one camera.
BobT Wednesday Feb 11 07:27 AM
and that pack of smokes.....still PERFECT....not crushed at all!...from the ocean bottom?....and seems to be located somewhere inside the fish between the outside of its stomach and inside the wall of its body....hmmmmm

Ahhh, our beautiful oceans: Trash Cans for the Masses.

How do you know it wasn't a land skate?
Shawnee123 Wednesday Feb 11 10:33 AM
Good point, but I didn't see any candy wrappers.
WillieO Wednesday Feb 11 10:46 AM
It's not a land skate! There's no wheels and no skate key on a shoestring around it's neck.
Sheldonrs Wednesday Feb 11 11:33 AM
Maybe it's a cheap skate.

Well, I got a brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key

I been looking around awhile
You got something for me
Oh! I got a brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key

Melanie. I worked for a record label that briefly handled her back catalogue.
Shawnee123 Wednesday Feb 11 02:42 PM
Yeah, my mom's name is Melanie...so she gave me that record.
Undertoad Wednesday Feb 11 02:56 PM
Did she... uh... explain what the song is really about?
sweetwater Wednesday Feb 11 03:07 PM
So the skate ate all that trash but there's no normal foodstuff in its gut? Hmmm... methinks I detect a whiff of shenanigans.
WillieO Wednesday Feb 11 03:17 PM
What I remember of Melanie is that I got her album and 11 others for just 1 penny!!! All I did was join Columbia House records and my life was ruined for years! Ahh, just imagine, 12 cool albums of music that I never would have bought..."but Mom, it's only a penny!".
Shawnee123 Wednesday Feb 11 03:29 PM
It's like Naive Shawnee Day!
edit: Googled. Puh...the whole Freudian thing seemed too obvious. Anyway she said this:
"'Brand New Key' I wrote in about fifteen minutes one night. I thought it was cute; a kind of old thirties tune. I guess a key and a lock have always been Freudian symbols, and pretty obvious ones at that. There was no deep serious expression behind the song, but people read things into it. They made up incredible stories as to what the lyrics said and what the song meant. In some places, it was even banned from the radio.
Undertoad Wednesday Feb 11 03:57 PM
Yah! And then there's the middle verse
Shawnee123 Wednesday Feb 11 04:18 PM
Hmmmm...and how do you feel about that? [/freud]
Trilby Wednesday Feb 11 04:36 PM
It's easy to put all kinds of things into songs that don't really belong there...why, I remember hearing NIN's F*** YOU LIKE AN ANIMAL and thinking, "hmmmmm...wonder what he means by all that?"
Slothboy Wednesday Feb 11 07:29 PM
I tell you what. I would work LONG and HARD to figure out who that camera belonged to. I would then do whatever it took to personally return it to them. The look on their face would be worth any amount of effort.

I think this fish is really a private investigator. I'm not paying that son of a bitch either.

Trivia. Melanie's last name is Sofka. Back in the 70s, she was this cute chubby young girl, whose knees looked like melons, which is why she was named Melonknees Sofka.
