The Great Calamari Thaw

The NZ Herald reports that the Collosal Squid caught off Timaru has weighed in over 100lbs heavier than estimated at 1,089lbs.

That’s about half a tonne.

The next problem is how to defrost it. It’s presently frozen in a 1 cubic metre block of ice, and could take three days to fully thaw. In that time, however, the outer tissue would have already begun to decompose.

Front running solution appears to be to try and fit it into a microwave oven of some sort. Apparently there are some gigantic ones used in the treatment of timber that they might be able to fit it into.

What kind of sauce they will use is as yet undecided, though whatever it is will need to mask the taste of ammonia…
