PZ Myers is so gonna want one

A mechanical, ride-on squid!!

This is just one of the mobile sculptures at Les Machines de L'Ile, a unique gallery of mechanized sculptures in Nantes, France. Others include a 45-tonne mobile steel elephant, on which visitors can ride -- which reminds me of a Jules Verne novel I once read (OK, I confess: I only had the Classics Comics version).

Do you still have the Classics comic? It'd probably be worth a lot now.
