Yesterday I saw something on the floor in my office by my feet.
At first I thought it was a small twig or something, but I looked more closely and it seemed strange - alien.
So I took a nice thick wad of paper towel and picked it up - it was wiggly!
It was cone shaped - pointy on one end and larger on the other. On the larger side, if you looked in from the top it had squishy, wiggly, noodly things sort of coming out. I gagged! What the $#Q#$ was this? It was about 3 inches long.
I showed my SO and he had no idea! I just dumped it in the trash.
Having just watched the recent Gr*y's An*tm'y w/ the "penis fish" episode - I wondered, did this come out of my dog's butt? Was this a parasite?
After the google scan of parasite pics, none matched the wiggly thing in my trash.
Later, when my teen son came home I showed him, and he said, very casually, "oh, it's a lizard tail" the dog apparently likes these to snack on once in a while and apparently thought he was giving me nice present.
It is almost mother's day.
It's stiill disgusting and I feel a gag coming on now - but at least the alien is identified and it won't burst into a bunch of baby aliens or anything like that in my trash can!
