I Think We Need Some More Marinara…

Imagine getting some of this on your plate

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — A fishing crew has caught a colossal squid that could weigh a half-ton and prove to be the biggest specimen ever landed, a fisheries official said Thursday.
If calamari rings were made from the squid they would be the size of tractor tires, one expert said.
The squid, weighing an estimated 990 pounds and about 39 feet long, took two hours to land in Antarctic waters, New Zealand Fisheries Minister Jim Anderton said.

“The size of tractor tires”. I’ve had some calamari that was rubbery enough to be tractor tires, as well.

    First time I ever had octopus, my wife bought a couple of tentacles from a Korean Grocery that must have dated from the Japanese occupation of the peninsula. I used the same joke: “I didn’t know Goodyear sold seafood”.

    Leave the gun; take the calamari.

    Mr.B – she owed me big time from the infamous rotten duck egg incident.
    But she did give me the “Oh, you dumb Americans don’t know what’s good…” Chew. Chew. Chew. Chewy. Chew. “My God, this thing is vulcanized, isn’t it?”
    Being right is the best revenge. Almost as good as taking your wife to a Skynyrd concert in West Virginia as payback for her dragging you to a Yani concert in PA. Almost.

    Isn’t Yani banned by the Geneva Convention?

    I wish. She’s somewhat outgrown him under my influence, but she still listens to George Winston. Amusical garbage.
