From the Anchorage Daily News:
It is a blob of stuff floating around Alaska. It is not oil. It is not Sarah Palin's cosmetics, scraped off after a hard day.
"Coast Guard Petty Officer 1st Class Terry Hasenauer says, 'It's certainly biological. It's definitely not an oil product of any kind.'"
It's huge, and no one has ever seen anything like it before. And it's still moving. Coming to a town near you...
