I bet it tastes like chicken

Raise your hand if you've ever told your kids,

"It's an onion ring. Give it a try."

Sadly, we apparently missed all the live thawing and examination action that was available on the web, but Squid Live Blogging is active to allow us to share the joy.

Or a steel belted radial; calls for extra salt and vinegar.

May I just say that "Colossal Squid Corpse" wbagnfa punk band.

We're gonna need more marinara.

26 feet? That's nothing!

I swear I had an abridged version of 'War of the Worlds' as a kid that included these giant squid-like looking beings. I see this and all I can think is 'the invasion is nigh.' I really should start getting more sleep.

Just a typical day in this comic strip ...

Also seen in Shannon Wheeler's "How To Be Happy" comic (formerly Too Much Coffee Man) - a talking cephalopod.

I know it's a big--colossal even, squid. But does it really seem tractor tire big? I watched the clip of the scientists unwrapping it for the Big Thaw. I think it's fascinating that they (the scientists) only have a few hours with the tissue. The squid just doesn't seem tractor tire big. The length and giant eyes I get...wouldn't want to come face to 10.8 inch eyeball ever in my life! Maybe my idea of tractor tire is different here in Kansas...where I only have to worry about 200 lb catfish.
