Alien Brain Starfish?

I don't know anything about this lump of pink flesh. They claim it's a deep sea starfish... They don't expect us to believe that do they?

It's clearly a brain. A brain unleashed from the dark tedium of a cranium and enjoying its time in the slightly less dark and tedious deep sea. Can't you see it throbbing and pulsating in delight of all the new sensations? It's like a dog with its head out the car window. Especially the tongue. It looks a lot like the dog's tongue.

I wonder what it'll do with all those spinal columns?

That thing has a whoooole lot of backbones for an invertebrate. Up to no good, if you ask me!

Haha! Too right! If you ever see a disembodied brain with 8 spinal columns creeping toward you, don't for a minute think it's normal.
