It's pleasing to note, from time to time, how thoroughly the Squid Ink
way of life infiltrates modern society.
This week's example comes from page seven of the Good Weekend magazine
which came free with today's copy of The Age.
Question four of the quiz asks “What marine creatures have three
hearts and blue blood?” which is a lock-it-in, put-your-house-on-it
gimme for any fan of the band.
And then, only inches away is question 15 of the quiz which asks
“What type of animal is a hinny?”
What type of animal is a hinny? Is this the final proof that
Squid Ink's radio-friendly smash hit is taking over the press or possibly
that Ms MacDonald and Mr Schluter, who compiled this particular quiz, were at
the gig at the Brunswick Hotel — hoping in vain to see a fellow Fairfax
employee playing onstage — and thereafter had Squids and crossbreeds
on their minds?
Food for thought.
