The Bloop.

So a dear friend introduced me to this crazy thing called the bloop and I just have to share it with you.

The bloop is a famous sound that the ocean made that was really loud and unidentifiable and they still don't know where it came from and apparently it sounds like *blooooop*. 

You can read more about it on Wikipedia here.  I'm sure they have a few more details than my quick synopsis.

"The Bloop" is kind of like when everyone's sitting around the Thanksgiving table and someone breaks wind.  It is really loud and no one claims it, so everyone blames everyone until everyone gives up and decides to label it as "unidentifiable."

I am so sorry for that fart joke but I just couldn't resist.

EXCEPT, this is a little different because, I don't know about you, but the idea that a huge unidentifiable sound came out of the deepest, darkest depths of the ocean kind of gives me the creeps.  What in the world is down there?!?  Who knows, it could be the Loch Ness's Grandpa.

Actually, that's pretty likely, considering Grandpa is always the one making the unidentified sounds at Thanksgiving dinner.  Yes, Grandpa, we know it was you.  Always have.  We're just polite.

  1. Oh my god, I've read about this!! It blew my mind. The super deep ocean is creepy, it's so mysterious. Glad I'm not the only one who was fascinated :) Oh, and it sounds like your grandpa's bloop could be solved with an Alka-Seltzer.


Comments are much appreciated xoxo
