Friday Squid Blogging: "Truck Carrying Squid Crashes In Broccoli Field"
You can't make up a headline like that.

I guess I would have made up a headline with the squid crashing into a field of onions and sunflowers (don't you like your squid deep-fried with onions?), so no I wouldn't be making up the headline about the broccoli. Somehow they just don't go together. =)
BTW, thanks for the enjoyable side-trips on Friday Squid Blogging. Some of the funniest comments I've read on this blog are in response to squid articles!
That squid is pretty strong, what with carrying a truck and all.
Sure, but he still needed to lay down in that field and take a breather.
The article states: "It is unclear what caused the crash."
It's obvious what caused the crash. The squid wanted broccoli and took over the mind of the driver. Duh.
My first read added a hyphen: "Truck-Carrying Squid Crashes In Broccoli field" Led to an hilarious image.
Huzzah! Stir fry for the populace!
Did a whole post about image metadata just completely disappear from the blog?
"It is unclear where the truck carrying the squid was coming from or headed."
This is scary, doesn't the government keep a database on all squid-related movements in the country?
What concerns me is the threat any escaped squid pose to critical infrastruture.
Recommendation to USCYBERCOM: Cook all squid at port of entry.
After reading the head line my mind naturaly thought the first sentance should be,
"After the chaotic event the police are waiting for things to simmer down."
"This is scary, doesn't the government keep a database on all squid-related movements in the country"
Oh dear does that have a second meaning or what, and opens up a whole other sub-plot...
Especialy as Bruce has posted about Government related organisations investigating sewer contents to see what people had been ingesting (and if it was illegal or not) in the past...
I believe you have a truism / joke in the US along the lines of,
"Why are congressmen always making motions in the house?... Because they are full of it!"
"crews were still clearing the squid that had slipped into the field"
Now that is quite the visual.
Drink. The poison of judgement. Squids that touch wine shall never opine.
Greenfield, CA is a) nicknamed the broccoli capital of the world and b) "In recent years, the town has seen a massive influx of immigrants". Therefore, migrant workers who can pick broccoli 8 times as fast.
These are obviously shock troops for Cthulhu (the very definition of a terrorist) and the threat level should be raised to red.
Under "Links we like", at the bottom of the article, it (currently) says:
"Don’t get suckered into spending more cash than is necessary to fix your car. "
Isn't that how Reese's was invented a truck with chocolate crashed with a truck full of peanut butter. Perhaps squid-broccoli will be the next culinary fusion. Hershey's should jump on this opportunity.
