Mystery Beach Made of Sardines is a Bad Sign, Probably

Published On June 7, 2012 | By Dave | news, wtf

End of the days is coming. Forget the Zombie Apocalypse. Sardine beaches.

In Japan, there’s a scary sight on a port in Isumi City of Chiba Prefecture. The ground has been covered by 200 tons of dead, rotting sardines and the ocean has been stained red with their blood.

…the rotting sardine beach started crashing onto the shore over the weekend and continued into this week. It’s insane that there were so many sardines on the ground it looked like rocky sand.

The scariest thing is that no one is sure why this is happening, some are saying it’s a lack of oxygen, others are pointing to it as an omen for another disaster.

Alright! Tomorrow is Friday!
