Summer's here. That means monster season. What creatures do lurk in the darkest sewer pipes of the Tar Heel State? Some disgusting, pulsating, alien blob creatures do.

No idea what these things are, but you certainly shouldn't watch this video until you've fully digested your breakfast. This video is allegedly from a sewer snake cam in North Carolina. This is exactly what flamethrowers were invented for.

Naturally, our monsters-and-alien obsessed pals over at io9 spotted this yesterday.

Update: A local TV station in Raleigh has called up the folks who run their monster-encrusted sewers and they say the video is real, but sadly is actually a colony of worms "attach themselves to roots" and "gradually work themselves into weak points in the pipes."
