At last a decent thread, thanks Anubis for putting this through the threadomatic. I shall be considering candidates for a "squid of the year" award in the Monkeys.

Windsor might be mildly interested to know that Fraserburgh is the squid Mecca of Scotland: post 14. Drugs and squid, what a fantastic combination.

A member prone to changing their avatar from time to time should consider the squid option. A google image search for said creatures produces an array of cephalopodic possibilities.

A giant squid being caught by Japanese fishermen using another squid as bait.


Squid-on-squid action, what more could one ask for?
Pardon me but I got to run
The fact's uncommonly clear
I got to find who's now the number one
And why my angel eyes ain't here

Excuse me while I disappear

Do men really angle for squid, surely that's like hunting ants with a pack of hounds?

Ah I think squids are boring. But those creatures who roam the great deep with headlights are more worth the talk.

If you love squids you may be interested in watching "Slither" - it has some creatures that could possibly be related...

My profile picture contains squid & blond nubile females. A classic, yet sadly rare, mix. ;)

A guy goes into a seafood restaurant and asks to see the dishes of the day. The waiter wheels over a trolley and the man examines the dishes.
"I'll have the little green squid with the hairy lip, please" says the man. "O.K." replies the waiter and calls out "Gervais!"

A little French chef appears with a large knife, the waiter instructs the chef to kill the little green squid with the hairy lip.

Gervais is just about to slice at the poor squid when he notices a tear running down its face. Gervais is touched, and admits that he hasn't the heart to kill the squid.

"Not to worry" says the waiter, and calls out "Hans!!" at which an enormous German bloke comes out of the kitchen. "Sir", says the waiter, "this is Hans, the dishwasher. Hans, kill that squid!"

The dishwasher wields a huge rolling pin and is just about to bludgeon the little green squid with the hairy lip when it cringes back and gives a little cry.

"I am sorry sir, I just cannot kill the squid" Hans admits, his lower lip trembling.

"Well sir," says the waiter, "it just goes to show.

That Hans that do dishes, can be soft as Gervais. With mild green, hairy lip squid!"

I've liked both your avatars thusfar, can't say how I'll feel about this one.

Although, really, I've had my "Canadian Paula" avatar in storage for a while, waiting for an opportune time... :bat:

That's not a squid it's a haggis.
