Scientists Snack on Giant Squid

Recently scientists in middle-earth have admitted to snacking on a colossal squid being stored at their lab, while working on defrosting another giant squid.

Mark Fenwick says that "It was almost like a tua tua, you know a cockle. It was very nice. It left a real taste in your mouth and stayed for quite a while,"

(They say that they were checking for ammonia, but I suspect they just love the taste of cockle.)

Remind me never to be a giant squid.

I'm not sure that "it left a real taste in your mouth that stayed for quite a while" is a description that I'd put in the "good" category! Never had cockle, either.
That's true. That makes it sound disgusting. :/
Hmm, I bet it would be a tough ole bugger. I know lobster gets tough if it is too "old" :-)
How dare they!!! giant squid are mah favorite animal and theyt were working with steve o shea!!!"

Are you kidding? This is a unique, once-in-a-lifetime scientific opportunity, and even if you sent it to Africa, it would be rotten by the time it got there!

What if this was an intact frozen dinosaur, caught in the antarctic ice? Let's grind it down into burger patties to feed to the homeless?

Quick, somebody send the Mona Lisa to Burma - I hear they're badly in need of roofing material...
