How about the children’s cartoon Sponge Bob Square Pants (or whatever it’s called) that my 4 year old son watches.

I belive Mr Squidly is a squid…

Isn’t this whole squid thing about played out, or is there some back story I don’t know about?

@George Bailey: Bruce just likes squids, and tries to have a weekly squid entry.

Bruce: perhaps you could avoid these questions by renaming the blog to “Schneier on Security (and Squids).”

I was a bit disappointed! I was looking for Mr. squid but he was nowhere to be seen. He is one character in Spongebob. Does it ring any bell?
