Footnotes: Donny the Ill-Tempered Squid and Other Reasons to Nuke the Oceans
- 6:30 AM
This week on Footnotes, we ask: Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? No one, because the giant squid have murdered everybody. In this special undersea episode, we head to the depths to visit with all manner of creatures that have grown enormous in an effort to get their own Discovery Channel specials.
From 12-foot Japanese spider crabs to 60-foot oarfish that don’t appreciate being used as oars, we’ve got the material for the next week of your oceanic nightmares. Not that I think it needs to be said, but you shouldn’t watch this episode while in the water.
