something to lighten your day..

For more than 30 years, pieces of Garfield telephones kept washing ashore on the beaches of northwestern France, and no one quite knew why. Where was the lasagna-loving cartoon cat coming from?

The mystery would puzzle the locals for years. His plastic body parts, first appearing in a crevice of the Brittany coast in the mid-1980s, kept returning no matter how many times beach cleaners recovered them. Sometimes they would find only his lazy bulging eyes, or just his smug face, or his entire fat-cat body, always splayed out in the sand in a very Garfield fashion

I actually have an old Garfield phone similar to the ones in the picture. It probably buried itself in my attic junk room long ago.
I'm a bit surprised it took 30 plus years to find a shipping container in a cave. But anything is possible, I guess.

I bought one of those for a horrible ex-girlfriend back in the day. What crappy memories this brings back.

That is a very, very long article and it doesn't get to the reason until the end. I'll spoil it - there was a shipping container of garfield phones in a cliffside cave near the ocean.

No one knows why it was there.

Well, these things happen a lot and have actually helped map some current activity in the ocean.
Many, many, many shipping containers have been lost at sea.
