Welcome, fubsy squid overlords.
You know, I think I remember getting something like that in my seafood salad last time I visited Greece.

It is cute, but I don’t think it’ll replace big-eyed puppies as a subject for velvet paintings.

Hmmm…if I took some art classes, maybe I could be the next Keane. Or a Kincade! “The Painter of Darkness”, with my kitschy portrayals of lost R’lyeh.
AWWWwwww…Too Cute! I like the sepiolid.
I’m Calling the SPCA – Society for the Promotion of CUTE Animals.
(and stealing yer pic for a Link!!)
[The SPCA is right on my speed dial next to *The Thought Police* and *The Fashion Police*. Tho’ the line for the Fashion Police HAS been *bizeee* this week taking calls on *suspicious T-Shirt wearers* in the Nation’s Capitol. Just hard to keep up with the LAWs. *snark*]
It’s cute but I wish its tentacles were showing to better advantage.

It is cute, and I didn’t know we had it out here.
