    What do squidies shout? More butter! More garlic!! More olive oil!!! More vin!!!! More cheese!!!!! Calamari enjoy delicious food. There are reports they eat themselves.

    Locally, I’m unsure how much self-feasting goes on. For one thing, there is another famous local product the Kraken enjoy: Sun-dried long pig. The Kraken pick the sun-drying long pigs off the beach. Not too much, so far, this year; it’s a bit early in the season and the weather has been alternating between proper Irish rain and Mediterranean sun. I suspect the sun-dried long pig flavouring this year (amusingly called “sun tan” or “sun block”) might be Whiskey-flavoured Waterproof, which will probably suit the Kraken just fine (they do make a tasty rum, after all).

    One of the reasons I have no hope that we’d ever be able to communicate with extraterrestrial aliens is that we have perfectly intelligent beings on this planet we can’t talk to

    Do we all have to wear the Squid Hats too now? Or are we only entitled to a much less exalted Whelk Fascinator or Nudibranch Tiara instead?

    No, no, no. The squid is a sign that we must gather squids together in abundance!
