Film of the giant squid after capture.

A magnificent giant squid was captured by Japanese scientists who were disappointed to learn that the mythical creature Godzilla had once again eluded capture. The giant squid was the first of it's species to be caught on video tape.

Many scientists were looking forward to studying the creature and learning more about it's behavior in a controlled environment. However, this will not be possible. The crew decided to celebrate by frying up squid tempura batter and eating the creature on the ship before they returned to the shore.

Many in the world community are outraged and appalled by the actions of these scientists, saying that it would have been more appropriate to donate the animal in an aquarium and study it, or release it back into the wild.

The Japanese scientists apologized saying that they had "no experience with capturing live prey, I mean animals. We are so used to eating the delicious whale blubber and other catches on site." However, they assured the world community that the squid was "delicious until the last bite."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
