Mysterious Squid wbagnfarb?
Jumbo Humboldt squid - now that's just funny.

"Ink, seawater and squid guts — all the makings of a grand old time."
That's what I'm talkin' 'bout!

Key quote:

"Ink, seawater and squid guts — all the makings of a grand old time."

Kinda makes me wonder why I spend all my money on bars, women and partying when squid fishing sounds like so much more fun. Although a squid fisherman can use way more pirate talk in everyday coversation so there is that, me hearties.

"Though one angler compared landing a squid to hauling in a heavy bucket, Powers claims even experienced anglers called these trips the most action packed of their lives."

Either that one angler is not as experienced as the others or maybe his haul just wasn't as "action packed" as the others'. I can remember having dates as exciting as a heavy bucket.

It IS a mystery, their disappearance. I wonder if it had ANYTHING to do with watching their friends writhe on the end of a hook for a while, and then get pulled to their death.

Okay, fine, Squids don't have "friends", but wouldn't you cast the vote at your biweekly shoal meeting to move on if your neighbors kept getting hooke?

Why not combine the two activities, Brad? "Hey, baby, wanna see my giant squid?"

Sounds like a horror movie...

"They eat anything they want," said Chris Cascarano, a five-year veteran of a bait and tackle shop in Marin County. "Hell, they even eat each other."

*cue theme from "Jaws"*

Rushing to purchase tickets to Cher's new undersea concert venue?

They are gone now mysteriously - these are the citizens of Atlantiz. Whe must think kindly of them.

They were delicious.. "URP"

(basically the same joke I used in the hamster comments, I know)

So much ink, seawater and squid guts; so little time.

Oh jolt squibb, dumdum

With the Oscars still fresh in our noggins, how 'bout a remake of Moby Dick with these giant carnivorous booger fish? Russell Crowe scooping out a big thrashing loogie as it snaps its bloody beak is something I would pay to see!

The squid had to go; they knew too much.

Does that mean the squids are now "sleeping with the fishes?"

Does PETA know about this??

Memo to Tippi Hedron:

I said BIRDS, not squid!!!

"So they only live about 3 years? Will there be a new crop in 3 years and will they be democrats then instead of republicans?"

One really wonders about WHY they would want the squid I mean would YOU want a huge,slimy,thrashing,angrey,ink squirting,tentilcle writhing defrosting booger fish?

I eat sushi all sorts, even eel and giant clam, but this squid is disgusting!

I once had a Parker Fountain Pen that squirted ink just like a squid. It didn't have their other characteristics, however. Did you happen to mention the squid's nasty little beak? It has been mentioned before on the blog that the 'thing' looks like and asteroid orffice, which makes it all the more repulsive.

I know where they went. I typed in /squid and now they are all over here.
