This Was Inspired By

A Recent Atlantic City

Tabloid News Article…



Some very strange sightings

Off the old New Jersey shore

Is this a man or a sea creature

Or some mythical being of lore


Reports from adults on the shore

Sightings by many small children

Ship captains have seen this, too

These sightings, now have no end


It’s some sort of oceanic dweller

With barnacles, on its huge head

Could it be an octopus or a whale

Or a being called ‘Jersey Devil Ed’


Could this be an evolutionary mutation

Like those characters, depicted in X-Men

Or, could this truly be an unknown species

That had lived in the deep, and did ascend


Or, could it be an old sea-faring ghost

Like those in Pirates of the Caribbean

Its eerie image, now captivates so many

In the light of the moon’s illuminating sheen


Whatever this very strange creature is

It now seems to be feeding, near shore

And now, since sightings have increased

People are flocking here, more and more


And the very strangest part of this strange tale

Is that a brown dog has been seen, on the beach

They say this dog seems to be keeping an eye on it

As it feeds on crabs and sea urchins, just out of reach


A huge reward has just been posted

By one of the Atlantic City Casinos

Anyone who captures this strange being

Has now been promised a fortune in gold


I’m Betting On The Dog;

I Bet He Lures It In,

With a Milkbone.



©2009, Old Mr. Ed,

A Huge Fan of Strange Tales



PS: Any and All Odd Similarities

To My Brother, Who Lives in Jersey,

And To His Big Brown Dog, Rufuz,

Are, Of Course, Purely Coincidental.


Unless, Of Course,

The Tabloid Agrees

To Pay Me Big Bucks,

For An Exclusive Exposé.

I told Jersey there was some bad weed floating around down there
I didn't exactly mean in the water
The brown dog must be the look out
