It's Coming for You Next!



Did you ever think you'd see an octopus walk on dry land? This is a terrifying development for all of us who live near water.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! (And thanks for the link, Olivia!)

I have a six step plan of defense against Walktopus:

1. Cutting Board
2. Fillet knife
3. Batter
4. Breadcrumbs
5. A full bottle of cooking oil
6. Frying pans -- one for every burner of the stove

That is so strange because in art class we had to create a sculpture and mine was... AN OCTOPUS WHO IS WALKING ON LAND! If you want to see it click on my name and then Chickas! I have pictures there.

@Robert: You would eat somebody as clever as that? Somebody who can do awesome things like squeeze through a hole the size of a thumb? Somebody who can do mazes and puzzles without a spine? A poor orphan that never knew his parents? Sir, you shock me.

...Somebody with friends who can walk on land too?

*creepy laugh*

Very cool: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Octopus#Intelligence

Dear Mads:

That landopus you sculpted and painted is great!

I heard that a lot of sightings of the Loch Ness Monster were on land. Maybe the walktopus copied her.

IT'S COMING FOR US ALL!

Dear EQ:

If an octopus walks on land, then they can handle my world infamous chipotle/cilantro dipping sauce after frying.

Admittedly, I have never seen an octopus walk on land (though they are quite intelligent, they even use tools). Not octopi, but I have seen leeches worm their way up rocks towards us (their prey). Unfortunately for said leeches (it has happened several times), I took a long stick and shoved it back into its native element.
