Shameless Filler Post

It occurs to me that Octopuses (Octopi?) are the creepiest creatures in the world. I mean, 1) tentacles. Tentacles are fucking creepy, man. They reach and wrap, and have suckers on the end like those car ornaments and it's just weird. 2) They have big heads. And eyes. Nothing's creepier than octopus eyes. And finally 3) the ink thing. I don't get that.

They look like aliens.

It makes me want to go find old Aquaman issues, in the hopes that at least one will involve a knock down drag down fight with an octopus. I'm betting it'll be Aqualad, actually. Poor Garth seems like the sort.

    Ma'am, you also forgot to mention the fact that they can squeeze into any crevice. Even a keyhole. And they're the smartest invertabrates.

    Well, I was thinking of examples, rather than a complete list.

    But those are very good points. Fucking creepy. :-)

    Okay, that's JUST CREEPY.

    Maybe you can just trap one in a box...

    Yup, decentralised brains are just wrong. If evil genetically engineer octopi try to take over the world the all-purpose monster killing headshot is redundant.

    Hmmmm....

    Octopi aren't nearly as creepy as sea lampreys, what with the blood sucking, and that mouth... The lamprey mouth is something out of the X-Files.
