They had everyone fooled!

On the news, a hole created by two boys on a Dublin beach was mistaken as a “meteor crater.”
The hole in question was deemed to look “out of this world” and stopped local astrophysics enthusiast, Dave Kennedy, in his tracks when he came discovered it on Portmarnock beach in Dubin, Ireland.
Yesterday (September 13), Virgin Media News interviewed Dave about the discovery and his belief that “it came from up above.” Look at the strange progression of events below:
Numerous onlookers reportedly thought they had seen the “aftermath of a cosmic event.”
Speaking about the ‘mysterious hole’, Dave told Virgin Media News: “As you can tell by here, there’s a scorch mark on the side here.
“So that would have been at the angle that it came down and it is weighty, I’m not sure if it’s composition, but we’re definitely gonna have to find out.”
Although there had been “no confirmation” that the hole had been caused by a meteor strike, the news source did mention that Dave “spent the day” contacting astronomy experts in an effort to “solve the mystery of the crater on the beach.”
But since then, the whole scenario has been fully disproved by video evidence.
One X, formerly Twitter, user posted a video to social media on Sept. 14th explaining how the mysterious hole came to be.
They began: “Lads I’m in bits.
“Virgin Media News is after reporting on a hole on Portmarnock beach that ‘could be the aftermath of a cosmic event’.”
The person continued by saying that rather than any extraordinary events, the whole affair was the result of some hard work by a couple of guys.
“Some fellas literally dug it the day before with a kid’s shovel,” the Twitter user confirmed before adding: “The way your man was talking about the rock being an asteroid had me in tears.”
A whole avalanche of individuals have rushed in to share their comments, showing that the amusing situation has undoubtedly made an impact online.
One X user penned: “It was just a lad and his mates digging a hole the day before. Wild how this has become a news segment.”
“Well, this is awkward,” commented a second.
A third echoed: “What a shambles.”
A follow-up tweet was provided by the X user who submitted the major announcement video, despite some others using the occasion to make fun of Dave.
“Some of you freaks are being very f*cking weird about Dave. Who by all accounts is just a guy who got excited when he found a big hole and a cool rock,” they wrote.
“People have been doing that for thousands of years ye a*seholes. Don’t be w*nkers.”
Well, that settles that then.
Thousands Of ‘Penis Fish’ Have Washed Up On An Argentina Beach
A strange phenomena has seen thousands of ten-inch “penis fish” wash up on an Argentinean beach.
The beaches of Multillar, which is located north of Rio Grande, were covered in the gloomy sea worms, scientifically known as urechis unicinctus and have a likeness to a male’s appendage.
The critters arrived onto the shores on Monday afternoon following a severe storm. This is not an uncommon occurrence in Argentina; in the past, after excessive rain, stacks of the sea worms have lined the southern coast of the nation.
Locals captured images of the about ten-inch long phallic looking creatures along the seashore earlier this week with many finding the display amusing.
The sea worms have previously washed up in large numbers on beaches in California and Argentina and in in 2019, thousands of the sea worms washed up on a Californian beach.
The worms enjoy burrowing in the sand, but storms and ocean swells may easily cause them to veer off course and arrive on beaches and land.
The creatures, sometimes known as “the fat innkeeper worm,” make a U-shaped tunnel on the sea floor that is left open for other species to move inside, hence the name.
The organisms have been present for 300 million years, according to fossil data. A single urechis unicinctus, which has a lifespan of up to 25 years, is frequently pursued by otters, sharks, seagulls, bigger fish, and people.
Due to its high content of amino acids, the species has achieved special reputation in Asia where they are consumed raw for their therapeutic advantages.
At wet markets, where clients may exactly choose the one they want, they are typically sold alive and they they are said to have a mild flavour with the texture similar to the delicacy of clams.
While eating sea worms uncooked is traditional in most Asian nations, certain parts of China choose to dehydrate the critters so they may be stored for longer before rehydrating the ‘penis fish‘ when they wish to be consumed.
As well as this the sea worms are a highly prized delicacy in Japan, where sashimi is prepared by adding soy sauce and vinegar. DELICIOUS!
