It's a shame the Cream Honeycomb Sponge doesn't have any honey in it.

Otherwise we could just swim off the coast of eastern Australia and gather dessert from the sponge gardens.

@Crunchy: I don't think so. Which is good because sea bees would probably be a thousand times more deadly than normal bees if they existed.

@TexWisGirl: Holes instead of spikes, a kind of anti-cactus!

@Porakiya Draekojin: Haha! Exactly!

That link is incredible! Such a shame something so beautiful can be bad news
