Thinking about rocks

We were driving along the coast road, and Fainjin was admiring some particularly fine rocks.  When he’s thinking out loud, there are often pauses…

“Hey Mum!  If rocks had roots


like plants


then a round rock


would look like a squid!

(It would look like a squid, not an octopus, because it would have too many legs).”

Discussion ensued as there was some disagreement over whether squid are round.  Eventually consensus was reached that the statement would be better applied to pointy rocks.

If rocks did have roots, like plants, that is.

    What do you call a squid with no legs? A rock.
