What is a Calamari?

Hello again people; I wonder what new things have happened to you all in these last few weeks since I’ve been gone?  Ever since I’ve started working a 5-day week again I have found less and less time to do the things I love, including blogging.  But, all this hard work is for a good cause, I assure you.  But more about that later.

So a few weeks ago, a middle-aged man approached the reception desk, brandishing a small box of Louwhiss Brand Fried Cuttlefish Fingers.  With a very serious look on his face, he pointed to the ingredients list and asked, “what is this thing here, this…calamari?”  So I told him that it was squid.


Ok no, not really – that would have been too easy, and we all know that nothing in customer services is ever easy.  From the confused look on his face I could tell that this man didn’t understand what ‘squid’ was, and when I tried ‘cuttlefish’ it was met with the dubious response of, “Oh, er…fish?’ 

Most other people probably would have just given up at this point; I mean, it’s barely worth the effort really.  But no, me, being the moron that I am of course, thought it would be a brilliant idea to DRAW IT.  So I set about with pen and paper to illustrate this illusive creature, the Calamari.

Initially I honestly thought I did a good job of it.  I picked up my masterpiece and waved it excitedly in front of him, expecting the look of recognition to sparkle in his eyes.  Instead, I got a mixture of shock, embarrassment and a mumbled “oh…k…never mind” before he quickly left the desk.

Bewildered, I looked at my picture again, about to launch into an internal rant with myself about how people can possibly be so ignorant as to not know what a squid looks like, even after I’ve drawn it for them…when I glanced again at the paper in front of me.     






I should probably apologise to the poor man who now thinks that there’s deformed penis-meat in our fried goods.




Note to self: You are NOT good at drawing squid.
