New Zealand - A fishing crew has caught a colossal squid that could weigh a half-ton and prove to be the biggest specimen ever landed, a fisheries official said Thursday.

The squid, weighing an estimated 990 lbs and about 39 feet long, took two hours to land...

traditional methods had proven unsucceseful in catching the elusive squid.... using a radically new technigue the captain of the vessel trolled around known breeding grounds with Chad Johnsons head in the water..trailing the blonde strands of his mohawk

from the article:

"I can assure you that this is going to draw phenomenal interest. It is truly amazing," said Dr. Steve O'Shea, a squid expert at the Auckland University of Technology. If calamari rings were made from the squid they would be the size of tractor tires, he added.

phenomenal interest is right. carson palmer has asked to have the squid named the honorary mascott for his off-season, Cornhole Classic event.

the bears looked into this but the players union stepped in and rejected the idea, citing potential job losses for raiders and texans qb's

they did approve a sperm whale replacing warren sapp though.

The scientists found that the squid has a larger back bone than the bungals team.
