Small Object of Desire #87 – Purple Googly-Eyed Stubby Squid

stubby-squid
Just look at it! Adorable, right? How can you resist? Is it one of those plastic toys you squeeze rhythmically for stress relief?  Or maybe it’s a cute animated character? The latest emoji?

In fact, it’s a real creature of the deep with Latin name Rossia pacifica and not a true squid even though it looks like a cross between that and an octopus. In fact, it’s more along the lines of a cuttlefish. Stubby squid? A purple, googly-eyed stubby squid?

Stubby squid. That everyday name doesn’t sound like it belongs to a grown-up kind of animal. Or like an animal that wants its dignity to be taken seriously.

I’m so glad God has a sense of humour. Find out more at Time Magazine.
