3. UNIDENTIFIED SEA CREATURE IS A PLUMBUS FROM RICK AND MORTY | Nerdist
“Any good Rick and Morty fan knows what a Plumbus is. But even to these experts, the question stands: how do they make them? Of course it involves smoothing out the dingle bop with a bunch of schleem, and rubbing the fleeb because of the fleeb juice, and also there’s some spitting and rubbing, and pushing it through the grumbo. But how do they—meaning the forces of evolution—make a Plumbus in real life? We don’t know. But what we do know is that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) apparently found one floating in the deep sea off the coast of Hawaii.”
The resemblance is uncanny.
