Colossal Squid To Be Microwaved

Well the river is on the rise again, and my friends are on the move. I've suggested that they all buy travel trailers with quick release services, that way they could take their houses with them! Well my prayers are with you guys!

I don't know if you say the story in the paper or on the news last month about the colossal squid that New Zealand fishermen caught off the coast of Antarctica. That squid weighed in at 1,089lb (540kg), nearly 100lb heavier than initial estimates.

The fisherman froze the colossal squid for the journey home to New Zealand's national museum, Te Papa Tongarewa, in the capital, Wellington.

*snort* Well now scientists want to study the squid, but the problem with leaving the 33ft-long (10m) squid to defrost naturally at room temperature is that it will take several days and the outside will rot before the inside thaws out!

Does anybody out there have a microwave large enough to thaw a colossal squid? *snort* Calamari rings from that puppy would be the size of tractor-trailer tires!

Hang around for the joke below:
