I’m a big fan, but I must have missed one thing. Why does Bruce always blog about squids on Fridays? Thanks in advance to any light-shedding.

Regarding R. Finley’s post, how about instead of light-shedding provide some shed-lighting?

Isn’t it obvious that if squid-post would not be published on fridays, they could not be called “Friday Squid Blogging”. And completely unrelated there might be some homophone to “friday” which might give those hot-oil-fearing squiddies the frights.

Wow… talk about being influenced by the media. I read that title several times, and clicked through to the article before realizing it was “sexing squid” and not “sexting squid”….

I heard a story on the radio, I think CBC’s Vinyl Cafe but can’t find it, sent in by a listener. He was a priest from the city appointed to a diocese in an outport in Newfoundland. Thinking to learn more about his parishoners’ way of life, he went squid fishing with a local. Who, when they had caught a good many squid, told him to separate them into male and female. “Just hold the tentacles apart so you can get a good look just under the beak; it’s fairly obvious”. The priest got a good dose of ink in his face, hair, clothes etc. and the local didn’t stop laughing for a good while.
