I saw it first a couple days ago, on Colbert, having given up on Gawker a couple months ago for some reason I can no longer remember. It is, of course, the Montauk Monster, the toast of summer 2008, which we will perhaps remember fondly for at least another week. Here it is, in all its gross, decaying glory, the underwater hell beast that totally crashed out on the beach, to our delight, and disgust.
And here's the wonderful picture currently gracing the desktop of the timeclock-computer at the record store where I sometimes work. Finally! A change (in decomposition) that we can believe in!
