Farrah Billings found a golf ball-sized spherical object on the beach Saturday on the Long Beach Peninsula in Washington. She doesn’t know what it is, and so far, nobody else does, either. There are several things we know it isn’t, anyway.

It is not: ambergris (whale barf), the inside of a golf ball or baseball, a black walnut or a tar ball from an oil spill. A Google image search was similarly unenlightening; Mr. Google proclaimed the object to be a Christmas Rum Ball, or perhaps a Cocoa Rum Ball.

So what is it? If you know, please contact the Ear at 503-325-3211, ext. 257, or
