    It does rather look like you. Please don’t be inspired by how short-lived they are. I am very fond of the old piranha tank and would hate to see it melt, thaw, and resolve itself into a dew.

    (Sorry, was watching Tennet’s version of Hamlet this morning.)

    I think I should finally say this, PZ: with all your adorable pictures sea creatures, you’ve made me stop eating sushi and seafood pizza, which I loved. So thank you very much, I hope you’re happy…

    There, but for the suction cups, many more appendages, beak, eyes with an entirely different origin, and boneless body, go I and you.

    Maybe not the best simile, on second thought.

    Staying home?
    Or stepping out in style?

    It’s a trap! Those look suspiciously like the kind of pots Mediterranean fishermen use to catch octopusseseseses for the table.

    We do tend to leave a lot of cast offs along the trail, don’t we?

    Hey PZ!

    The advert for the new BBC biology show with Dr. Brian Cox features tentacley things! Oh, and a familiar song by Eric Idle…
