an even more giant squid


And you thought that squid caught off antartica was huge?

Killer squid found living in Chicago River
By Matt Maldre, freelance reporter
4/3/2003

Immediately after the news of the Colossal Squid found in the sub-Antarctic Ross Sea, an even larger squid was found arising from the Chicago River this afternoon. “It rose out of the river like a skyscraper!” an eyewitness exclaimed.

We don’t know how this squid managed to hide itself in the relatively small body of water, but one rumor holds that this SUPER-KILLER-MONSTER-SQUID got jealous once it heard of this seemingling “monster squid” was found.

Phone calls to the mighty morphin power rangers were not answered, rising questions of who shall defeat such a creature. Many chicagoans believe that we should just let it live and become the mascot of our city.

View the rare photo of this squid’s rising. Notice the boats trying to escape its wrath!

As long as the squid is not harming anyone, let it live and swirl its tenticles around gleefully for the joy of all.
