This week, dead fish washed up early Tuesday morning on Redondo Beach in California--hundreds of thousands of them.

Scientists are saying the deaths happened due to oxygen deprivation when they were driven into a pier area by a storm.
I can't help but think of the smell. Whew! Nasty!
And although officials figure they know the reason why this particular group of animals bit the dust, I still can't help but remember the strange story of all the birds that fell dead from the sky this past January. Did you hear about that? There were also bunches of deceased fish showing up around this time as well: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/01/05/dead-birds-fall-from-sky-_n_804591.html
Strange times we live in...
Fireworks and power lines were among the explanations for the birds, but it's still creepy as heck. I kind of like to wonder if they all ran into a cloaked mothership or something. Hmm...
But the real question is, what will show up next? Personally, I'm really hoping it'll be the world's entire population of cockroaches. Especially the big ones. You know, the mutated kind that occasionally pop up in the garage or the kitchen and you almost can't believe what you're seeing because they're so freakin' huge, and you end up using your entire can of Raid on them just to be safe?
**Ahem** Yeah, let's hope the cockroaches are next.
Have a great Weird News Wednesday, everyone!
