Don't think about an octopus.


Clear your brain. Think of anything but octopi.

Yeah, it worked about that well for me, too. :)

Online pal Breda seems to have this thing about octopi, and before reading about it, I frankly never much considered the little guys.

But, now, when I see something posted or published about them, I have to look. I mean, the first thought that goes through my head is: Is this going to be another demonstration of how creepy those little molusca can be?

And then my thoughts turn toward the realm of: And would it freak out Breda?

After seeing the videos linked in this Slate article, though, my thoughts kind of turn toward: Maybe she has a point.

It will not surprise you to learn that the Carpet Shark's nickname involves the word 'octopus'

Calimari are squid. And squid are different, though also molusca. There's a little place down the road that makes pretty damned good calimari, actually.
