The strangest supposed “fish” yet?

I’m sure that several years ago a bunch of out of work “oceanographers” like the people here got board and started faking various “fish” that only they ever saw in the wild and only they ever photographed and that lived in the “deep” ocean where nobody could verify their existence. I assume this was a funny joke that got out of hand and now they’re stuck with having to come up with a new “fish” every so often to keep up the ruse. Here’s the latest, a fish with a see-through head:

For the first time, a large Pacific barreleye fish – complete with transparent head – has been caught on film by scientists using remotely operated vehicles at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute. The deep-sea fish’s tubular eyes pivot under a clear dome.

    That’s really an alien overlord. The oceanographers, and marine biologists, have been ordered by the New World Order (run by aliens btw) to perpetuate the myth that they are fish.

    Yeah, they seem to expect us to believe HP Lovecraft inspired stuff like this too:

    How about a really strange denizen of the deep?

    I have seen flying fishes, but flying squid?
