Boing Boing tipped us to the silly nightmare fuel that is Deep Sea Fauna With Googly Eyes. This single-serving Tumblr uses stick-on googly eyes to dramatically improve deep sea photographs generously provided by the World Register of Deep-Sea Species (WoRDSS), The Smithsonian, The University Of Chicago, and The Handbook Of Deep-Sea Hydrothermal Vent Fauna.

Now these terrifying hellbeasts of the briny deep look slightly less likely to be plotting our deaths right now. But only slightly. If you ask me, they still look awfully . . . ( •_•)>⌐■-■ . . . (⌐■_■) . . . fishy. YEEEEEAAAAHHH!

When not writing for Uproxx, Caleb likes to volunteer at the legless cat shelter and photoshop the Babadook into all of his family photos. He once resolved the question “To be or not to be?” through the clever use of General Semantics. Your mom thinks you could be more like him if you only applied yourself.
