    That thing in the squid isn't technically its spine, but rather its interior shell, as it's a mollusk.

    I was legit hoping for three levels of filleting fish. The level one just throwing the whole fish in the oven. The level three showing us how to fish it out the ocean. And of course Lorenzo standing in for Level Two giving us his winning personality.
