I'm picturing a squid wearing a sombrero having a nice siesta after eating a taco ... either that or it was seen swimming swiftly from a just opened shipping container under the glare of a circling chopper and the fire of the advancing swat team - how else would it be noticed ?

my favorite mexican squid: back when i lived in the san francisco bay area, one of my favorite mexican restaurants was "guaymas" in tiburon, where they used to serve a platter of grilled baby squids and octopuses, haven't been there in years.

We caught 2 large red squids out of La Push, WA Sunday 9/24/06 on the surface
while trolling herring for salmon. We were
impressed and are planning our next squid trip!
