Hi, Mom!

When Captain Beefheart remarked, on the album Trout Mask Replica, "A squid eating dough in a polyethylene bag is fast and bulbous," did he mean that the squid is fast and bulbous or that the entire Gestalt of the squid, the dough, and the polyethylene bag is fast and bulbous? Would it still be fast and bulbous if the squid were eating Cream of Wheat? What if the bag were made of Mylar instead of polyethylene? And what of the tin teardrop?
