Ask the Giant Squid: Stuff Giant Squids Like
Who is Poor Mojo's Giant Squid?
Hey Squidjette,

I can't help but notice that "Stuff X People Like" is the new meme du jour — NPR even did a story on it! So, what the fuck do you people like?

All Best,
Dave . . .

Dearest Editor Dave,

I am much flattered that you are taking the time to take an interest in my personal interests — especially considering your busy schedule and how infrequently you are able to, for example, take an interest in our weekly staff meetings, or the fates of the office bowling team, which now languishes in the lowest brackets (little Trael does endeavor mightily, but the ball is heavy, he is small, and the parquet aisle long and treacherous.)

In any event, please find listed below a brief overview of a selection of that stuff which we giant squids like.


No doubt, as you review this list, your conclusion is simple astonishment at how very much we do all have in common, once superficial differences in appearance and lifestyle are set aside.

Never did you imagine that mine is such an agreeable lot, no? I am, myself, a bit surprised at what "homey", pedestrian tastes define me.

Delighted, I Remain,
Your Giant Squid
