Take physic, pomp

Candidate for headline of the week

Agence France Presse regales us with a beauty:
“Giant Squid Concentrate Against Infant Malnutrition in Peru”.
And in fact it’s a pretty neat story about how Peruvian university boffins have separated a protein concentrate from the local “pota” giant squid that’s high in all the good stuff, low in all the bad stuff and would be a great food supplement to sneak into kiddies diets. Which is nice timing when one considers that according to this report today, Peruvian malnutrition levels rose in 2008….the same year that Peru “grew” by 9.8%. Then again, that growth is according to a man who has likely never had a malnourished day in his life.
