So one day I was walking down the street in Santa Monica on Pico, and I had to stop to see that there was a huge honking squid on the sidewalk, I mean like it was the size of a car, just dropped on the sidewalk. And about only one person was paying attention to it, looking it over with some curiosity. And everyone else just walked by without a care. So I stop to inspect the squid, and the first thing I did was poke it to see if it was still alive. So I poke it with a stick I found, and I swear a tentacle just jumped up at me! I fell down, and noticed a news van filming everything, but didn't pay much attention to them. I instead rush the squid, and I start wrestling with its tentacles, I have two in my hands when the police and National Guard show up in full force. A cop says over the loudspeaker "Drop the tentacles and put your hands in the air!" So I'm standing there on Pico, surrounded by law enforcement, with two tentacles of a dead squid in my hand, no idea what to do. So I just drop the tentacles and point to the squid "He started it!" I got arrested after that, and after I was released(on account that eyewitnesses said the squid was the one who started it), I got home, and found out we were having calamari for dinner.
