He went to the beach for a little piece of mind.
A Wisconsin beachcomber got more than he bargained for after discovering what appears to be a brain that had washed ashore. Now, local authorities are trying to figure out who — or what — it came from.
“It didn’t register as a human brain — I was just like, ‘What is this?’ ” Jimmy Senda, 47, told Fox News 6 of his gruesome find. The Racine-based construction worker and artist said he frequently searches nearby beaches for items such as sea glass to incorporate in his sculptures.
So he was understandably intrigued after happening upon a package wrapped in aluminum foil, fastened by a pink rubber band, while perusing Racine’s Samuel Myers Park Beach on Tuesday.
“Curiosity got to me, so I popped it open and it looked like a chicken breast,” Senda told his local TV news outlet. “It took a little bit for it to really [register] of what was going on; it was a brain.” Also in the parcel were flowers and Chinese money, according to Senda.
Senda was so flabbergasted by the bizarre find that he asked some nearby city employees nearby for a second opinion.
“They’re like, ‘Yeah, that’s a brain,’ ” he recalled, adding that a subsequent query to the police yielded a similar response.
Needless to say, the unusual flotsam is blowing minds on social media.
“Just when you thought 2020 couldn’t get anymore f - - ked up,” said one commenter on a Facebook gallery Senda posted depicting the “Hannibal”-evoking discovery.
“What kinda ritual they was tryin to do,” wondered another.
However, others doubted that it was a bona fide human brain.
“Its a pig brain,” said one Facebook skeptic. “Look how small it is in your hand jim!!!!”
Another scoffed, “Yeah why won’t you say what the police said — it’s obviously not a FULL GROWN human brain…”
Indeed, cops told Fox that they don’t believe the noodle is human — but they are currently awaiting official confirmation from the Racine County Medical Examiner’s office.
Senda, for one, is just glad he’s the one who made the discovery.
“There’s a lot of kids and families that are down here, and what happens if a kid would have found it?” he said.
