Nature is insane, and nature in Australia is particularly mind-blowing. When a team of scientists from the Museums Victoria in Australia returned from a month-long expedition exploring Australia’s eastern abyss, we’re sure they were jazzed to share their interesting findings with the world. The discovery of new and unknown creatures lurking in the deep ocean is sure to tittle even an amateur scientists fancy.

One particular sea creature, however, was a bit more titillating than we were prepared to handle.

We’re sure it was no accident that the International Business Times UK chose this image to share when they tweeted out their article on the expedition (social media managers and interns are the unsung heroes of the internet). It didn’t take Twitter long to get wind of this cute little fella, and turn a scientific discovery into endless jokes about penises and mermaid masturbation.
