A friend of the family got their kids a Portuguese water dog and they named her "Lula" which is apparently Portuguese for squid. I think thats pretty sweet.

If the goal was to get everyone to stay home, then it might be valid - I wouldn't want to go out there. "Did you see the size of the squid out there? I'm staying here."

I totally would watch that without subtitles. Get stoned with some friends and narrate the dialogue MST3k style.

Plot twist: the squid is more chaste than Sir Galahad, and the schoolgirl's libido is so high that her blood type is "Cosby roofies"

Not a big deal. The rich guys are gonna have to pay a little more, but the way we were going it would have been a violent overthrow if we didn't do anything for the oppressed.

Still, a giant squid statue is easier to maintain than a birdbath..
