    John P is just rude. It’s as furry as a fungus colony, it has beautiful greenish-gray-brown flesh with pretty pink stripes, a cute combination inspired by color-blindness, and large friendly eyes with gaping pupils like black mine shafts.

    OK, I give up, which end is the face? Or perhaps as the old saw goes, with a face like that I’d shave my tentacles and swim backwards.

    Actually, ’tis a beautiful critter.
