Three of a kind: stuffed squid

Three of a kind: stuffed squid

There are 16 comments on the The Sydney Morning Herald story from Jul 9, 2012, titled Three of a kind: stuffed squid. In it, The Sydney Morning Herald reports that:

If ever a creature seemed purpose-built for stuffing, it's squid. Once the head and guts are removed, all that remains of this obliging cephalopod is a neat pocket with a perfect pointed seal at one end and a spoon-width opening at the other.

Roboblogger has hit a new low posting this in the Evolution Forum. The squid is "intelligently designed" for stuffing. Oh good grief.

The squid assumes its place next to the banana as "proof" of Intelligent Design.

Good work!

Why not? Nature designs better predators, it designs more appetizing prey. Tastes great fried.

I'll never forget the post one of you guys wrote about how the banana was intelligently designed, so full of double entendres, risqué to the max, you had me laughing so hard I was crying.

As for the squid, please, give me a lobster any day stuffed with crab, buttered bread crumbs, green onion, garlic, lemon and a smidgen of cayenne pepper....

All you "hath no fins and scales in the waters" eaters are all doomed to Hell.

Don't you know that you squid, octopus, shrimp, crab, lobster, oyster (especially oyster), etc. eaters are an abomination in the eyes of the Lord and are on par with homosexuals, evilooshunists, torture, murder and genocide as things that are hateful to God ... well, okay, maybe not torture, murder and genocide, but for sure homosexuals and evilooshunists.

There is NOTHING as bad in the eyes of the Lord as things the "fundamentalist christian creationists" don't like ... or understand.

Oh, well. D*mned if you do, d*mned if you don't. Might as well eat good while you're at it.

I'm hungry now also, and to top it off, I cannot get that intelligently designed banana out of my head.

Well, that's certainly very delish, but a side of salt and pepper squid, or perhaps some squid flash fried in garlic butter with sweet chillies would be nice. Of course, then we would need to add some fresh school prawns, just quickly boiled in sea water served whole in a great big pile in the middle of the table - peel your own and just suck the sweet little beggars down - YUMM, then a couple of dozen Sydney rock oysters to kick it all off. Now you're talking!
