Friday Squid Blogging: A Marine Biologist Comments on "Pirates of the Caribbean"
It’s got squid:
Danna: As you can imagine, I was pleased with the strong cephalopod theme.
Charles: I thought you might be upset by the reinforcement of negative squid stereotypes.
Danna: This might be another “take what I can get” moment. I was somewhat upset that the Kraken had all those teeth instead of a beak, though.
Charles: Well, lots of teeth are scarier.
Danna: I’d have to disagree, having spent a couple of weeks getting very personal with jumbo squid beaks. They’re very, very sharp.
Charles: I’ll take your word for it. I’ve never been personal with a squid before.
Danna: That’s probably just as well. Ink and mucus isn’t for everyone.
