She don't use jelly

For no particular reason other than it made me go 'yuk'. I went swimming in the Black Sea off Yalta once, and there were hundreds of jellyfish; it was like swimming in tapioca. But not ones this size, thank God.

an obvious one I know but considering the source:

these jellyfish...coming onto our shores, taking up our valuable land...we're only a little island you know.

Some Jellyfish are not a single entity but a community of many, forming the whole. Sort of like Socialism but without the troughers.

Not the proudest moment in my life but when I was about 8 I went on a cub scout camp to Gatehouse of Fleet in Scotland and we kinda bricked loads of jellyfish. Never pulled legs off daddy longlegs or owt but yeah, hmm, if I get killed by a Portugese man o'war then karma has been restored - not cool but lads are lads and I guess it was the first time any of us had been without the folks.

How on earth do you brick a jellyfish? Doesn't it just bounce straight back and hit you in the face?

Dick the Prick said...

Nope. I can't remember them floating up like goldfish so perhaps they were just stunned. It was on a rocky beach so all the missiles would have been smooth. Fantastic part of the world.

How can you stun something that has no brain?

Ask the Speaker - whoa, whoa there - cheap shot, uncalled for - outrageous. Should I have revised? Err..break its capilaries, although it may be osmotic through the solute potential - geez, they have disaggregated neurone centres I think.

Is that a human foot at bottom left, next to the stone?
