R’lyeh has risen! Ia! Ia! Cthulhu fhtagn!

Mariners report new island in South Pacific

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — A new volcanic island has risen from the South Pacific near Tonga, according to reports from two vessels that passed the area.

The crew of the Maiken, a yacht that left the northern Tongan islands group of Vava’u in August, reported on their Web log on August 12 that they saw streaks of light, porous pumice stone floating in the water — then “sailed into a vast, many-miles-wide belt of densely packed pumice.”

This is it, people—the stars are right! As predicted in The Necronomicon, R’lyeh has risen and soon dread Cthulhu will lay waste to the earth. Your only hope is to be eaten first! Pray to be consumed quickly by the Bloated One and his hideous spawn! Ia! Ia! Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn!

    Ha!, oh my god, I don’t know if Dunkin’ Donuts spiked my coffee, but everything is cracking me up this morning. This entry? On par with NotLD’s legendary “he’s just *poured* into that shirt” comment.
