    Thank D! As posted on FB...

    To all TONMOers: I want to issue a public apology for erroneously promoting a story about a "squid" or "jellyfish" in Bristol Harbour with a remarkable level of brightness. It turns out it was a hoax; a promotion for a TV show or something. You rely on TONMO to be a reliable source for expert cephalopod information, and we faltered. In our defense, it was a pretty good hoax. :wink: Please accept our apologies and keep on cephing.
