The Monterey Herald hit close to home today with Turning the tables on giant, predatory squid:
These fascinatingly grotesque creatures can reach 7 feet in length and weigh in excess of 100 pounds, are known cannibals and can tear off a fisherman's hand with its razor-sharp beak, dousing its prey with prodigious amounts of black ink.
I can't tell what's making me cringe more: the grammatical disaster that are this sentence, or the scientific absurdity of claiming a squid beak could tear off a fisherman's hand. Let's all say it together now: Humboldt Squid Do Not Eat Humans!

And, ink is a defense mechanism, not a hunting strategy.

And, who are you calling grotesque? This is beautiful!
