Handy as a hand cooler, for playing pocket billiards, and for surreptitious chromatophoric message transmission.

       There's something fishy here.

       Rather surprisingly, she hasn't busted out the magic words...

       Sounds rather like the Prairie Squid so beloved of SubGenii around the world. I would include links but they are all quite quite filthy. Just do a Google search on prairie squid.   

       Ah, go on. I dare you.

       Not so sure - there's always a danger of someone accidently grabbing you by the tentacles.

       1. how would you keep it alive? (assuming you wanted to, and if you didn't, you would be carrying a dead squid around) 2.what would be the point in having a squid in your pocket? (sorry if I missed it)

...erm, wet pockets? Oh, and chromatophoric message transmission (of the phrase "Help, I'm trapped in a pocket!")

       //having a squid in your pocket//   

       Spend it in the corner shop? As your bus fare?
