Life Today’s Animal: the Invading Jellyfish
They have an improbable, but beautiful, life cycle.
A group of jellyfish is called a smack.
You can eat themóslice and marinate the jelly bits, serve with sesame seeds and green onionsóbut you should know that they shit out of their mouths.
They are spineless. And brainless. And, thanks to global warming, they are infesting the Mediterranean. And clogging English canals. Some of the deadly ones are drifting around Rhode Island. And killing tourists in China. And starving sturgeon in the Caspian Sea: no more caviar.
Clearly, something must be done. Where is the president during the great jellyfish crisis? Battling crickets and cameras in Crawford.
