There is also the Tasmanian devil:

pibbuR who notices that there is a book on amazon about Wolverine vs Devil (https://www.amazon.com/Wolverine-VS-…/dp/0545451892).

PS. Lots of references on the subject fpund on Google, actually. The general opinion is that the Wolverine would be the winner, given the size difference. DS.

PPS. Regardiong sizes: There's also the description of gnomes in Terry Pratchett's Discworld. They're not more angry than other species, but all that anger is consentrated in a very smal body (10 cm). DS.

The real Tasmanian Devil is also very nasty.
And not brown.

No doubt the cartoon implementation is based exactly on that nastiness.

pibbur who thinks he's mostly resembles more gentle animals, like the … (NOT SHEEP!!!!).

The Tasmanian Devils await to welcome a pibbuR to the antipodes.

That or the sweetly named honey badger. There has been speculation in both directions as to who would win and it's inconclusive.

Here's some hilariously mis-translated signs in various countries. Well worth the time.

Just Google "Squid Game - SNL". There are other sources besides YouTube.

Don't watch it though if you haven't seen Squid Game yet.

Advice taken. I will definitely watch it eventually, just have to at least partially finish the shows I'm watching at the moment (Mr Robot season 1, Another Life season 2, Foundation and one more series whose(?) name eludes me ATM)..

One problem with the series I've noticed from Norwegian newspapers is that in some cases children in kindergarten and primary school has begun playing scenes from the series. I thought the series was meant for a slightly more adult audience?

pibbur who considers this mainly a problem with the poarents and not the series.

It's definitely meant for an adult audience, yes. There are children in a few scenes, but those scenes take place away from the main plot and are very tame by comparison.

I have read here similar things. Apparingly this series is a favourite among teenagers or even among kids.
At least that's how I've understood it.

I've come to believe that it would be a good idea to put everything about this octopus game into the "politics" section.
