Bush Creates Roaming Gangs Of Marauding Jellyfish

And the salmon sleep with the fishes

DUBLIN, Ireland (AP) -- The only salmon farm in Northern Ireland has lost its entire population of more than 100,000 fish, worth $2 million, to a spectacular jellyfish attack, its owners said Wednesday.

The Northern Salmon Co. Ltd. said billions of jellyfish -- in a dense pack of about 10 square miles and 35 feet deep -- overwhelmed the fish last week in two net pens about a mile off the coast of the Glens of Antrim, north of Belfast.

Managing director John Russell said the company's dozen workers tried to rescue the salmon, but their three boats struggled for hours to push their way through the mass of jellyfish. All the fish were dead or dying from stings and stress by the time the boats reached the pens, he said.

So, how long until the BushChenyRoveHalliburton right wing conspiratorial death machine figures out how to get this jellyfish armada to fly?

THAT will make for some fun news reading.

See? Genetic engineering is worth the start up cost. And jelly fish are very cheap to make, deploy, and sustain.

Our next project will deal with the land based barbarian hordes once and for all: Behold, land sharks.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

"Roaming Gangs Of Marauding Jellyfish" would be a great name for a rock band.
