The Saddest Seahorse

Anilao, Batangas, Philippines: Yellow thorny seahorse

It was called to my attention today that I might be guilty of anthropomorphizing seahorses and/or projecting feelings on them.

Well, if that's wrong, I don't want to be right.

Here in Anilao, Philippines, we happened upon this little yellow thorny seahorse who just seemed like the Eeyore of seahorses. The Droopy of seahorses. The Charlie Brown of seahorses. This seahorse is Simba when Mufasa got trampled by the antelope. This seahorse had to shoot Old Yeller. This seahorse already knows that Vader is Luke's father and that the Titanic sinks and everybody dies.

Everything sucks when you're the saddest seahorse in Secret Bay.

Why the long face, Sad Seahorse? Are you lonely? Under-appreciated? Just plain misunderstood?
