It’s cute, but I want to see that flier regenerate the lost arms. And as I recall according to a book I read as a kid called Octopus Lives In The Ocean by William and Peggy Stephens when a male octopus loses an arm it may regenerate in a different form for delivering sperm.

When I was seven or eight I explained all this to my grandfather who was duly impressed by my knowledge of cephalopod sex.

I want to go buy a tentacle from the local fish market and nail it to that sign.

The back of each leg should have “AAAAGH! MY LEG…You bastard!” written on it

What? I just saw a different one of these the other day, and look, here’s ANOTHER version . . . http://www.flickr.com/photos/aaronpk/5778234304/ . . . and ANOTHER version . . . http://www.flickr.com/photos/spidercamp/6088042454/

I think they should all get together and have a >8-leg leg wrestling match to see who was first.

But if you look carefully this one is an octopust. So it’s different than the other versions.

Wow. I saw one of those on campus in Lexington, Kentucky…three months ago? Something like that.

Apparently it’s getting around.

Now that it’s appeared here we’ll be seein’ 'em everywhere. I guess those wouldn’t be copycats but coptopuses.

…with the word NO.

+1 for correct use of “fewer” vs. “less” :wink:
