A certain squid wanted to be a painter. Wide-eyed, she would paint just about anything. But as soon as she finished painting, she would change colour and blend with her paintings. That’s why nobody saw her at the exhibition.

    My tinned fish gang(? club? church?) tried this tin during our last dinner and it was the standout HIT of the night. Every single one of us vowed to get it again and again. Do not thing twice on this one — it’s a banger!
