Yes, I heard about this at dinner tonite, and was going to rush here and post about it...

Guess Mr.Marsh get's the "Roland Hedley" award for on-top-off-it-ness...

You can thank my wife Janet for that one. She sent it to me and while it's not quite about giant squids I thought it close enough to justify posting here.

But... how did the coconuts get there? Are they suggesting that coconuts migrate?

Of course they aren't suggesting that coconuts migrate. It could have been carried. (By an African octopus, not a European octopus, of course...)
