We Have To Fight Them There

What did I tell you fools? Did you really think stingrays would be content ruling the seas? Well, don't you look silly because now the freaking stingrays are freaking attacking us outside the freaking water! From CNN:

A leaping stingray stabbed an 81-year-old Florida boater in the chest, authorities said Wednesday, leaving its poisonous stinger lodged close to his heart in an incident recalling the one that killed Australian TV naturalist Steve Irwin last month.

Fire Department officials in Lighthouse Point, about 30 miles north of Miami, said James Bertakis was in a small recreational boat with two grandchildren Tuesday when the spotted eagle ray leaped aboard and struck him.

Can inland attacks be far behind?

What the shit is that all about! Do you think that I should be worried about those little shits making their way to Ohio, all I know is that I am avoiding drains of all sorts.

If they ever master the power of flight, God help us all.

Jesus Phlip, don't your parents have a place North of Miami? The story said the attack occured "30 miles North of Miami"! Get them the hell out of there!

It's a little farther north than that, but have no fear, they bought a magic rock that wards off flying stingray attacks. It seems to be working, no flying stingray attacks there yet.
