Friday Squid Blogging: Sperm Whale Eating Giant Squid

I read this as sperm whale-eating giant squid. As in a giant squid with a habit of eating sperm whales.
I was appropriately awed.
Then I clicked the link and saw it was a plain old sperm whale that had caught itself a giant squid. Not news. But the fact that it was captured on film is pretty awesome.

I also misread that title – It’s a sperm-whale-eating Giant Squid!
Maybe it should rather be: Sperm whale eating a giant squid.

No, the title is fine as is. It’s a sad comment on today’s education systems that people expect titles to be misspelled.

A panda walks into a café. He orders a sandwich, eats it, then draws a gun and proceeds to fire it at the other patrons. ‘Why?’ asks the confused, surviving waiter amidst the carnage, as the panda makes towards the exit. The panda produces a badly punctuated wildlife manual and tosses it over his shoulder. ‘Well, I’m a panda’, he says, at the door. ‘Look it up.’ The waiter turns to the relevant entry in the manual and, sure enough, finds an explanation. ‘Panda. Large black-and-white bear-like mammal, native to China. Eats, shoots and leaves.’
