There's something interesting about the turmoil they go through in dealing with that hulking deep-sea corpse. I find it rather poetic. The situation, not the corpse. That mysterious colossal squid, which can descend down to 6, 500 feet in the ocean, and which has a sharp, wickedly strong beak, and has hooks on the tentacles; they just aren't seen underwater, alive and swimming and all.
Such are the rovers where no light breaks. And one of the strongest impulses of man is to bring things to the light; even when done as "playacting".
You can see some coverage of the squid thaw here.
