  18. GREETINGS FELLOW GALAXY TRAVELERS
    OUR SECOND VISIT TO THIS NEBULOUS SPACE, THIS VISIT IS
    SINCE LAST OUR NAME HAS CHANGED BUT
    NAMES ARE TRANSIENT AS SPACE DUST

    TO EGGY RICE:
    TO BE A SQUID, HERE ARE RULES FOUR
    THAT I HAVE COME TO UNDERSTAND
    FROM PAST GALACTIC GATHERINGS.

    FIRST, WE ARE GIANT SPACE SQUIDS, SLOW TRAVELERS
    THROUGH THE VAST GALAXY OF SPACE.
    REFLECTIONS ON WHAT WE HAVE SEEN DURING OUR TRAVELS
    ARE MOST OFTEN EXPRESSED, AS TODAY IS OUR DAY TO CONVENE AND SHARE.

    SECOND, SEDATENESS, PROFOUND THOUGHT, AND LYRICAL SPEECH PATTERNS
    ARE THE NORM. LIKE YODA CAN OUR SPEECH BE, IF YODA WERE A SQUID

    THIRD, A QUESTION IS PRECEDED BY THE WORD ‘QUESTION’ AND THEN ‘QUESTION WAS’
    FOR EXAMPLE ‘QUESTION ARE CATS FUNNY QUESTION WAS’

    FINALLY, CAPS LOCK IS OUR PREFERRED TYPESETTING

  19. ONCE AGAIN, THE WISE AND MAJESTIC CEPHALOPODS CONVENE
    WE HAVE JOURNEYED FAR ACROSS MANY GALAXIES TO ARRIVE HERE
    AND SHARE IN STORIES

  20. LARVAE SHALL NOT BE EATEN
    THEY MUST GROW AND ASCEND
    THEY ARE NEWSHOAL
    THIS REACH HAS PLENTY TO SUSTAIN US
    LET US GRAZE THE ROCKRING BETWEEN THE FOURTH AND FIFTH ORBITS
    I SEE THE GLINT OF SILICON

  21. SALUTATIONS
    IT HAS BEEN LONG SINCE I HAVE TRAVELED WITH THIS FLEET
    BUT I WISHED TO BREAK THAT HABIT
    FOR JUST ONE DAY
    QUESTION
    IS THIS ACCEPTABLE
    QUESTION WAS

  22. ASTRATEUTHIS, THIS ONE GREETS YOU.
    YOUR SONG OF YOUR JOURNEY TICKLES OUR TENTACLES.

    CEPHALON, EGGYRICE IS A LARVA
    UNDERGOING METAMORPHOSIS.
    SPACEBORNE OR PLANETBOUND, THIS ONE DOES NOT YET KNOW
    BUT NOT A THREAT
    AND NOT FOR EATING.

  23. WE HAVE RETURNED
    THROUGH EMPTINESS OF COLD PINPRICK STARLIGHT
    THROUGH FLICKER-FUZZ DISCHARGE OF SOLAR WINDS
    THROUGH COMET CLOUD SPACE GRAVITY-STIPPLED
    THROUGH BRIGHT-SCENTED RADIATION HOWL
    WE ARE HERE AGAIN

  24. LONG WEARY TRAVELS WEIGH GREATLY ON MY BEAK
    YET A GATHERING SUCH AS THIS
    REINVIGORATES ME AS IT REIGNITES MY HUNGER
    TASTES AND TALES OF DISTANT TRAVELS BRING I AS WELL
    PLANETS FILLED WITH MULTITUDES OF MICROSCOPIC FLAVORS
    SYSTEMS OF BUT ONE MASSIVE GULP, MORE EMOTION THAN CONSUMABLE
    HERE THOUGH, OF THE MEALS I FIND I AM MOST FOND

  25. WHAT IS THE NATURE OF EGGYRICE
    QUESTION IS
    HAS NO SQUIDFORM
    EGGYRICE IS SMELT OR FRY
    QUESTION IS

  26. HAIL FELLOWS
    FROM MY GAS-KISSED FLORID NEBULA
    I AM COME TO REUNITE WITH THE SHOAL
    TALES I HAVE
    TALES OF BRIGHT BEGINNINGS AND TERRIBLE ENDINGS
    STARBIRTH AND STARDEATH
    THE UNENDING SWIRL OF THE COSMOS
    FIRST WHAT NEWS
    WHO GATHERS
    QUESTIONS ARE

  27. OUR SMALL COUSINS IN THE SEAS
    OF PLANETS AND MOONS
    JOIN US REMOTELY
    THROUGH EMANATIONS OF THEIR THOUGHTS.
    THEY WOULD QUICKLY PERISH HERE
    SO FAR FROM ROCKY CONCENTRATIONS OF MASS

  28. WAIT
    AM I SUPPOSED TO CHANGE MY NAME TOO
    I DON`T THINK SQUIDS LIKE EGGY RICE
    I`M SURE OF IT

  29. IT SAYS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE THOUGH
    “DEEP IN THE SEA OR AMONG THE STARS”
    SO I DON`T HAVE TO BE A SPACE SQUID
    RIGHT?
    I COULD BE A DEEP-SEA SQUID

  30. YES
    I WILL BECOME A SQUID.
    HOW?
    TAKE ME AS YOUR APPRENTICE
    PLEASE
    WAIT AM I NOT ALLOWED TO SAY PLEASE
    I DON`T THINK I`M ACTING VERY SQUIDLY
    DARN

  31. OR SHOULD I SAY SOMETHING
    VAGUELY POETIC
    IN ALL CAPS
    SQUID INK
    SQUID INK
    SQUID INK
    I WISH TO EXPRESS MY DEEPEST SYMPATHY
    FOR ALL THE EDIBLE STARS
    AND SQUIDS CONSUMED BY BLACK HOLES

  32. SMALL AIR-BREATHER
    THIS IS A GATHERING OF SPACE SQUIDS
    TO TAKE PART
    YOU MUST BE, OR BECOME,
    ONE OF US

  33. wait… I…. I… I`m so confused. i mean i know this is the april fools thing… but… i just don`t get it. i know of course that squids are an MB thing… but i just don`t understand….

  34. MY TENTACLES ARE WEARY OF SWIMMING THROUGH SPACE
    A REST IN THIS PLACE WILL BENEFIT ME GREATLY
    I MUST TELL OF A NEBULA AT THE EDGE OF ANDROMEDA
    IT WAS FULL OF SMALL CREATURES WITH FRINGED BODIES
    THEY INVITED ME TO FEAST ON THE YOUNG STARS WITH THEM
    IT WAS DELICIOUS
