Is Something Scary Living in the Sewers of North Carolina?

Chud

Anybody see the horror movie C.H.U.D. in 1984? Well, it seems Raleigh, North Carolina may have its very own 'cannibalistic humanoid underground dweller' living in its sewers. Okay, maybe neither humanoid nor cannibalistic. This clip, which was allegedly shot by a sewer-cam, has inspired curiosity and nausea, and experts say they have an explanation:

"They are clumps of annelid worms, almost certainly tubificids (Naididae, probably genus Tubifex). Normally these occur in soil and sediment, especially at the bottom and edges of polluted streams. In the photo they have apparently entered a pipeline somehow, and in the absence of soil they are coiling around each other."

Just hope they don't mutate.

Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. They are just worms, people. Harmless.
    "Normally these occur in soil and sediment, especially at the bottom and edges of polluted streams" - See? We, humans, created them actually for treating our environment like shit.

    But I do have to say that they do look a like testicles sans the scrotum. Have you seen them with the ball-sack? Google it. You'll be surprised!

  6. This is a strange article to have posted next to the weight watchers with the woman eating long stringy noodles. Too gross for me.
