Sea cucumbers

I was reading the other day about the strange defence mechanism of the sea cucumber. When disturbed, it expels all its guts (it can grow new ones) in the hope that the intruder will be too alarmed or disgusted to investigate it further.

Maybe it's a sign that I spend too much time online, but my first thought was that I've seen the same technique many times on Internet forums.
