Well That's Something You Don't See Every Day: A Giant Squid Giving Birth

Seen here looking like it's trying to hump a giant lava rock, this is some very rare underwater footage (it would have been even rarer if it were above water) of a giant squid giving birth. I'm not even entirely sure I know what I'm looking at. Of these thousands of babies, only one will survive to adulthood, and Disney will make a movie about it. It will not do as well as Finding Nemo though. Just kidding, I don't know what the odds of survival for squid babies is. It can't be that high though. I wonder who the father was. You think it was Poseidon? Or was it a merman? Or....was it YOU? It was you, wasn't it?! You're sick.

Keep going for the video, but skip to around 2:00 unless you just like watching different shades of blue.

Thanks to Thakar, who has always dreamed of seeing a whale give birth IRL. Heck yeah, dream big.
