Tales of the Unfathomable!

It was during my last expedition that I heard the voice. Oh, I was familiar with the legend, the tale of a sad, ghostly whisper that promised to reveal a fortune in sunken treasure to any diver who could appease her. I had laughed it off as folklore — until I heard it for myself. Or maybe it was just the wind whistling in my snorkel, but it sounded eerily like “shhhriiiimmmp… briiiiing meeee shhhriiiimmmp.”

  10. I think “Sealio” is a sealion.

  11. What a great picture! I wonder if the guy knew Mr. Sealio was back there.

  12. Friend, you are so creative and funny!! Maybe TOO much so! Naw, that’s impossible! Love you, love your work!

  13. “The dolphins were wroooong….the answer is forty-threeeeee”

  18. Fird Birfle says:

    ET BIEN!!!!! (this bit is slightly “over-the-head” of my working familiarity with la francaise Outrageuse, so I’ll revert to l’anglais ici)

    Does this seal know the wonderful “Jaws” turtle/ tortoise of scrimp-luvvin’ fame, from t’other day????? These two oughtta set sump’n up …..

  19. For some reason the website it’s blocked at work I guess my employeur doesn’t want us to plan our vacation time instead of working, go figure! :lol: I’m going to check it out tonight to see if they explain the back story of this photo, because if those are the tour guides Tunesia is going to be my next vacation destination!!!

  20. tunesia would be a good name for a music website

    Wonder if he knows this guy:

  23. talk about your siren song, eh?

  24. SlaveToCat says:

    And the next frame is of the diver wiping seal phlegm from his face. Those sealios are just the best pranksters.

  25. What a great photo! My first thought was that the post would be something about a sea monster, because of the grey rock behind the seal and the dude all unsuspecting….

  26. Sir Snorfsalot says:

    HAHAHAHA Oh I love I love!

  27. OOH, a mermaid!
