Sea sponge looks like Cookie Monster in viral photo by Mauricio Handler

Underwater photographer Mauricio Handler was scuba diving near the reefs of Curacao, in the Caribbean Sea, a while back and made an amusing discovery. Handler's wife, Julia, spotted this Cookie Monster look-alike hanging out under the sea, presumably trying to hide out among less-notable creatures. It wasn't actually the beloved dessert fiend from "Sesame Street," of course, but the photo has gone viral again as the Internet rejoices in their similarity.

It's actually a stove-pipe sponge, which eats plankton, not cookies or anything even close, but who knew Cookie's doppelganger was down there at all? Surely, Kermit the Sea-Frog can't be far behind. [Source]
