July 3, 2009: Pink Cucumber

Damn, I thought I posted this last night but I must have previewed and not posted.

Anyway, here's a pink cucumber for your 4th of July salad...
and it'd already salted.

Beautiful, ugly, or just plain peculiar according to individual reactions, this pink see-through fantasia is a swimming sea cucumber seen about 2,500 meters deep in the Celebes Sea. In 2007 WHOI biologist Larry Madin led a team of scientists and photographers from the U.S. and the Philippines on an expedition to explore biodiversity in the deep Celebes Sea, supported by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the National Geographic Society, and the WHOI Ocean Life Institute. The team used scuba diving, nets, cameras, and ROVs to study the deep sea in this area that has been called a "cradle of biodiversity for shallow water marine animals." (Photo by Laurence Madin, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
2500 meters is "shallow water"?

It looks like it's floating in space rather than undersea.

ZenGum  Friday Jul 3 09:42 AM

Well, it wasn't what I was expecting.

I say freaky-cool beautiful. Except that internal structure bit. That is a bit unsettling.

If I find anything that looks like that in my salad it's not going to be a pretty picture.

What qualifies it as a cucumber?

xoxoxoBruce  Friday Jul 3 04:31 PM

Dem smarties sez so.

spudcon  Friday Jul 3 05:19 PM

Any relation to the Purple Weenie?

richlevy  Saturday Jul 4 12:06 AM

Wow, cue in Also sprach Zarathustra for that one.

Aliantha  Saturday Jul 4 12:48 AM

It looks like a floating penis

What do they say to each other?

"Oh hey Mon, your large intestine is looking gooood."

capnhowdy  Saturday Jul 4 09:15 AM

" I know where this is going, you pervert. I can see right through you!"

dar512  Saturday Jul 4 12:06 PM

"It's a good thing I'm not Scottish, cause your insides look like haggis."

Don't say that or they'll ban it in Alabama.

Not. Of. This. Earth.

I ate sea cucumber in a Sushi bar once. Not much to rave about as I recall and not very attractive on the plate.

Wombat  Sunday Jul 5 06:57 PM

I ate some sea cucumber too, in a restaurant in Hong Kong. It was like gritty snot. Disgusting.

No! You were confused. It was just okra.

Tawny  Monday Jul 6 06:17 PM

I had a patient once who used to pull out her own rectum.

Oddly, it looked a lot like this cucumber creature.

I am a married woman and therefore not interested in your pink cucumber. kthnxbai.

Sun_Sparkz  Wednesday Jul 8 08:39 AM

Yeah, Tawny, umm.. WTF?!?!?!?

Capnhowdy - each of those were just laugh out loud ridiculous.

I think the cucuber is very pretty. except the thing inside kind of looks like an umbiblical cord to me.

I thought it looked a lot like a floating, impregnated, uterus with a big pink ribbon on front..maybe this is some kind of Japanese gift? I mean, look at the background?

ZenGum  Thursday Jul 9 12:06 AM

If it were Japanese, it would have more Hello Kitty crap on it.

Or chopsticks.

Clodfobble  Thursday Jul 9 12:51 PM

Or it would have printed across the front, "Cucumbering Joy For the Happy Existence!"
