Whoa. That's a bummer.

I always heard that the squids are alright. 😁

Nah, man.  Humboldt squid (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQKs1-fwTgU) are rapacious.  They grow from tiny to 200 lbs in two years so you can imagine how they must eat.  Plankton, fish, each other, Mexican fishermen, American divers, they're all good.  There are reasons why the locals call them Diablos rojos.  When they show up even the Long Beach Neptunes get back in the boat.

Yanno, I think the deep down inside Roger likes the idea of being a supervillian.  It's just that with a wife and kids at home, now is not the time.
