We like to think of starfish as adorable sea creatures that, when they die, can live on as delightful home decor. But that's likely because you've only ever seen them standing still. Unfortunately, seeing starfish in action proves they are living nightmares and maybe more suitable for a haunted house than the family beach house.
Starfish are the ocean's cutest fish, right?
We certainly don't seem to mind touching them.
These are the fish of peace.
Or do they?
Well, we have some bad news.
There's definitely a reason you've never seen a starfish walk.Yep, the way in which a starfish travels from point A to point B is pure nightmare fuel. It's just bad PR all around. No wonder they're always standing still when we're around. Otherwise, we'd realize they're aliens.
But like, bad aliens.
And of course the internet had to go and make it worse.

Of course, some people are completely blinded by their love of starfish.

But the real crime here is that SpongeBob lied to us.
