Default Favorite squid species?

Question. Are you team myopsida or team oegopsida? For those who are uninitiated, there are nearly 300 species of squid (cephalopods of the order Teuthida). My fascination with squids began while searching for the caching and forwarding web proxy. So you ask what is the difference between myopsida and oeopsida? Well obviously, squids that dwell in shallow waters are of the former type and the latter live in deep water regions. The former have suckers on the their tentacles and the latter have hooks on the tentacles. Easy mnemonic I use to remember, myopsida sucks, get hooked on oepsida instead.

Following is a picture of Bathyteuthis abyssicola:

Now we shall see a video:

Wikipedia also has a section devoted entire to squid as food. Here is the link for squid preparation.

This brings us to the poll of the day.
