Attack of the REAL blob flash fiction contest

So, apparently, the blob really does exist. Off the the Alaskan shore. Here's the story in the Anchorage Daily News. So far "they" know:

1) It's not an oil slick
2) It's organic
3) It's gunky
3) It has hair-like strands
4) It's 12-15 miles long
5) No one has ever seen anything like it

So, what do you know about it? Write a speculative flash (under 1000 words) story about this Alaskan blob and email it to me before August 1, 2009. The winning story will be posted here and the winning author will receive a copy of Awesome Lavratt. Winner will be announced August 15, 2009. Please paste entries in body of email and include your real name, and pen name if applicable.

And though I promised I'd never do this...

Here's our newest family member, Allegro.

vote it up!

I think it's a large glob of oil and some animal(s) got stuck in it (like the La Brea Tar Pits), and then it (they) died. That's what the hairy bits are. There is oil in Alaska, and there were such things a woolly mammoths and such living up there eons ago.
