Mysterious Blobs

giant blob Two days ago a giant blob-like creature washed up on a beach in Chile. Chilean scientists were baffled. They had no clue what the creature was. Based on the emails I've received, a lot of people immediately suspected it was some kind of elaborate hoax. But I don't think this was a hoax. Scientists now say that they believe the blobby thing was either the body of a giant octopus or discarded whale blubber.
I assume the Chilean blob bears no kinship to another blob which surfaced on the internet about two years ago. To this day I have no clue what this earlier mystery blob was. A real person? A photoshop trick? A fat suit? I've often seen it given the caption 'Splat.'

This is from a movie. I forget which one, though but I've read about it before.

that splat picture, is taken from a police site where real police, Crime Scene Analysis and so on. come together to make this far out website, with real pictures of real strange stuff that really does happen. so that is not a hoax or a rubber suit or anything. Its one of Our photos from our Police site.

'Splat', from what I later learned, was a sculpture by the British artist John Isaacs. Or that's what I was led to believe. Do you have a url for this police site?
