Like the whale that coughed up Jonah into the sea, the ocean is coughing up Halls cough drops along with a Portuguese Man-o’-War on the beach.
But there’s a difference. The sun and time will disintegrate the dead Man-o’-War in a few days time; the cough drop package, still zip-locked with three plastic wrapped fresh lemon menthol cough drops, will be around until who knows when.
The Halls cough drops and other plastics manufactured by a Pomethean species at war with Nature were found a few feet from the decaying Man-o’-War. Click Plastic Pollution for more information about the effects of plastics on the ocean, sea mammals, and the land. The ocean is coughing. But Nature always wins; it always has the last cough.
