Call of the squid

Was heading home from the local sand volleyball pits and at a five-way red light, turning left. Across a couple of young'uns with no gear pulled up behind the lead car. A few seconds after they stopped, they started revving their engines like they were ready to zip down the strip Since I was concerned they were trying to get my attention and if gotten would then want to socialize, I opted to continue watching the cross lights for my first opportunity to get as far away from them as possible.

That's what I call the mating call of a squid!

Would that be the mating call?

Were they wearing their sunday best tank tops, shorts and flip flops?

Help control the squid population, have your squid spayed or neutered
