I will arrive with my triple headed flail and we will duel. Prepare to lose some tentacles you flying squid bastard!

I'm invincible, prepare to die foolish mortal, when I said I was squid Satan, I wasn't joking.

We need to coronate a squid as King so he can have his face on our coins and notes. Right now. All hail the squid.

My peers and I refer to them as squid. "You owe me ten squid." That only really works when each of you know what you're referring to, though. I once said that to a stranger and I ended up with a bucket full of calamari.

P.s. I haven't forgotten about the ten bucks you stole from my store credit.
