Friday Cephalopod: Octopus got the moves

I was watching this, and thinking, “Man, octopus can dance.” If I could have moved like that, I might not have sullenly sat out the disco era.

    I’m of the opinion that sitting out the disco era is a point in your favor.

    Oh, and the octopus stuff is both cute and astounding.

    My friends and I used to call ourselves the ‘Squids of Death’. Our battle cry was “We’re mollusks, without shells! It’s symbolic!” (This had to be done in high pitched bad English accent a la Monty Python.

    Apparently, the octopuses here wanted to show us up.

    ….is that also symbolic? Now I’m confused.

  4. Trebuchet says

    I know “octopuses” is correct, but it’s kind of a funny-looking word.

    Are there left-siphoned and right-siphoned octopuses? Or can they just stick it around either side?

    It’s a shame that the filmmaker didn’t use music that went along with the rhythm of the octopus’s dancing.
