July 24, 2009: Piglet Squid

Piglet Squid is just so cute I want to eat him all up...

... but I hate calamari.



Quote:
The small squid, which is the size of a large orange, is normally found more than 320ft (100m) below the ocean surface, meaning little is known of its behaviour. Measuring just 4in in length the species has unusual pigmentation and acquired its name from its tuft of arms and tentacles, and rotund shape. Because of its deep water habit, little is known of the behaviour of the squid, although not surprisingly, judging by its body shape, it is known to be a sluggish swimmer. Properly called Helicocranchia pfefferi, the animals are also noted for the light producing organs known as photophores located beneath each of their large eyes.
This specimen was collected by the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium in San Pedro, California, where director Mike Schaat managed to capture it on film.

It looks like the money you could save by switching to GEICO. Around the eyes, at least.

I don't understand how people figured out that squid=food. eeeauw.

One of my vegetarian friends actually goes out of her way to eat that shit. If you're going to cheat with meat, at least have a burger or some veal or something.

I'm pretty iffy on eating invertebrates, generally. Unless they have a good exoskeleton. And taste good drenched in butter.

my mind insists on interpreting this thread as "piglet squad" -- conjuring up images of little pigs in football helmets.

I see police academy trainees.


SPUCK  Friday Jul 24 06:25 AM

Squidly is that you?



Aliantha  Friday Jul 24 06:27 AM

Squidworth from spongebob squarepants! That's what that thing looks like.



capnhowdy  Friday Jul 24 07:46 AM

This guy has a rather transparent personality.



Clodfobble  Friday Jul 24 08:30 AM

So, is he normally that inflated, or is that because he's closer to the surface than he should be? I can't tell if they're saying it lives in the aquarium now, or just that a guy who works at the aquarium went 100 meters below the surface and took a picture of it.

monster  Friday Jul 24 11:30 AM

Looks like he's been touched by a noodly appendage...



Sheldonrs  Friday Jul 24 11:32 AM

The other white fish?



Undertoad  Friday Jul 24 11:55 AM

Is it solid in the middle? If you cut it for sushi would it be like jelly, or would it pop?



birdclaw  Friday Jul 24 12:19 PM

How does that thing even move? Is that a sad attempt at a fin on the side?



xoxoxoBruce  Friday Jul 24 12:26 PM

Aren't squids jet propelled?



glatt  Friday Jul 24 12:37 PM

jet power



Gravdigr  Friday Jul 24 02:14 PM

Uh...yeah...what they said.

Also, glatt: Are you that string that got thrown out of the bar?



glatt  Friday Jul 24 02:18 PM

nope. I'm a frayed not.

Just string along for a bit.


Diaphone Jim  Friday Jul 24 07:28 PM

It might be a good idea to be careful pissing off this little piggy squid.
The Glass Squids include his Uncle Hamilton, who holds many size records for invertebrates, like 40 feet long and 1000 pounds:

Tawny  Saturday Jul 25 01:55 PM

And those creationists don't think there are any transitional species.

Put a pair of overalls on this thing and it looks just like the inbred cousins on my mother's side.



TheMercenary  Saturday Jul 25 02:51 PM

Calamari rocks! We love to eat that up, but it needs to be prepared correctly.



Sundae  Saturday Jul 25 04:54 PM

Squid, pigsy, octopus, whatever!
Sling it in rings and scarf it down - yum yum!

Get me some breadcrumbs, mayo and a fork.

Through in some assless chaps and you've just described my weekend.


Shawnee123  Monday Jul 27 04:06 PM

I know a few asshole chaps I'd like to throw in somewhere, preferably a bottomless pit.

Don't know why, but, I heard all that in pirate talk.

AAAarrrr!
