As opposed to the restaurant next door, where they serve octopus that has been painted to look as if it has been fried or baked.

Porpoise is swimming along when he sees Squid.

Porpoise says: “Gee mate. You look crook. Hop up on my back and I will give you a lift to where you are going.”

On the way Porpoise sees Shark. Shark says: ‘Hi Porpoise. Are you coming over to play poker tonight?’

Porpoise: “No. You cleaned me out last night. By the way. Here’s that sick squid I owe you.”
