Eye-candy for mollusc fetishists

I’m currently in grading hell, so here, something to entertain you. Unless you’re a clam. If you’re a clam, don’t watch this.

I shouldn’t have bothered warning the clams. They’re stupid, they probably watched it anyway.

    I expect this kind of anti-bivalve prejudice from Ed, but not you, PZ. I am disappointed.

    Now I have to find a new role-model for invertebrate justice activism.

    Just read the youtube comments. This may be the first time I’ve read them without despairing for humanity.

    ZeFrank is probably what happens when Firesign Theatre and David Attenborough produce a baby (“bebby”)!

    That moment when Ze breaks character and can’t help a natural giggle when discussing his search history containing “pictures of an octopus’s butthole”!

    Where is the octopus’s anus?

    It’s in the mantle cavity. Just have a look at this: http://universe-review.ca/I10-82-octopus.jpg
    Notice the position of the ink sac.

    @pentatomid – Ah, that’s about what I would have figured. So it all pretty much comes out right next to the siphon…

    Oh wow, so are those yellow lines coming from the brain huge nerve fibers running out to each of the arms?

    B.C. was my favorite comic strip until Johnny Hart got all Jesus-infected.

    I got my mom hooked on these. She loves ZeFrank.

    My favorite line: Unless, after a while, you found out that one of your arms was an asshole…

    Sad. It was like a very public psychotic breakdown with no-one coming to the rescue. I’m old enough to think it was a pretty recent occurrence rather than the vast majority of its run. It was such a science friendly absurdist humor seldom seen that it’s really sad that it’ll be forever known for the right-wing whacko shit that most people see it as. Very sad. It was a great, great, strip at first.
