A bizarre brown and yellow blob discovered in a man-made lake in Newport News, Va., last week set off wild speculation.

Some people thought the 4-foot blob was a leftover Halloween prank, perhaps a fake lake monster.

Others thought it might be an alien cocoon pod, such as those seen in films like “Invasion of the Body Snatchers.” Still others guessed that it might be the bloated corpse of a large snake or other animal.
