Big Week for the Giant Squid…

  1. A giant squid arrives on Italy’s shore intact…reporters at scene report Cioppino needed more garlic.
  2. First step purchase 500 gallons of formalin…next step order special-made tupperware measuring 30 feet.
  3. Yiddish proverb…Small children disturb your sleep, big children your life…takes on new meaning as a 7 foot baby visits Mote Marine Lab

  1. Your Jewish proverb reminds me of a Jewish Haiku:

    Lacking fins or tail
    The Gefilte fish swims
    with great difficulty.
