An interesting enough story from the research labs which, the reporter Sabrina Imbler wrote “When an Eel Climbs a Ramp to Eat Squid From a Clamp, That’s a Moray” as the “dek” (aka subheading) but the section editor Michael Roston determined it should be the headline. But it didn’t stop there. On a roll they went for broke with four verses.
When an Eel Climbs a Ramp. To Eat Squid From a Clamp. That’s a Moray
When an eel wants a squid that’s on land. God forbid! That’s a Moray.
If the squid is too flat. There’s no problem with that. That’s a Moray.
If the squid is so big. It still eats like a pig. That’s a Moray.
It deserves some sort of prize, standing alongside “Super Caley go ballistic, Celtic are atrocious” in the all-time pantheon of headlines you can sing.
The couplet that caught my eye was “training an eel, is like training a seal”
