Possibly not one of the honours he was thinking of when he took office but I thought he’d like it anyway. You can follow his squid adventures:
- Go to the Build a Squid interactive,
- Click on ‘Find your squid’,
- then ‘Search for any squid by name’ and enter ”Barack Obama”.
It was a job deciding what colour (or more appropriately colours) he should be. But I decided on the following:
- the biggest eyes because he’s got a lot to look out for;
- a good strong mantle (a bit like having a pair of wide human shoulders) because he’s got a heap of things to do and much to deliver on;
- a nice pair of big purple fins (purple being a healthy mix of red and blue) to help him steer things in the right direction;
- and long tentacles with a tint of green to reach out for all those ‘green’ issues.
Good luck with your new job Mr President…. I hope you like your squid.
