Thanks for remembering me. The can contained Chilean squid jerky made in Thailand. I can translate the ingredients if you want. As you may have observed from the expiration date, this probably tasted better back in the day. The squids are not running in the Japanese oceans like they used to, probably from changes in ocean currents. We can still get them at the markets, but they are smaller in size and fewer in number. I keep trying to convince grand dotter to eat them, and even offer her the tentacles, (the best part!) but she is just not ready yet. …someday…
There are certain countries where the people will eat just about anything. I had a neighbor once who said when he was in India once he went to an outdoor restaurant that had been recommended to him, and in particular a certain dish which was the house specialty. The dining area was adjacent to a huge tree with big black fruits hanging from the branches. He ordered it and the waiter went over to the tree and grabbed one of the fruits. It was a bat.
I need to get new glasses. At first I thought Nosegirl said testicles and not tentacles.
Always proofread. Tentacles are easy to locate, but I am not sure as to the location of squid junk. It probably goes in the disposal with the rest of the innards. Some folks like to salt ’em down as a delicacy over rice, but not me.
Actually the male squid uses one of his longer tentacles for the wink-wink-nudge-nudge. Reminds me of the story about the Englishman who goes to the bullfight. Know that one?
About when the bull wins?
Correct. I would have thought you knew that one. Did you hear about the penguin whose car breaks down in Arizona?
I have been a fan of Ernie and the Piranha Club for decades. I’m delighted to have found your blog.
Thanks Old Wolf.
