You rot in hell, entitled rich American shiathead.  A hell full of rocks, ball bearings and greasy floors.

And fark your brutal, worthless children who giggle as they beat sentient creatures to death like stuffed animals.  I hope your children are maimed in front of you some day.


It's a freaking octopus, you sock sniffer. Find some other self-righteous cause to be outraged over.

Mock26: Yeah, so what?  Tentacle anomalies in octopi are not unknown.  If this was an extremely rare new species then I could see the point of all the anger and angst and butthurt.  But if this was just a freak mutation then they family did the right thing by removing its defective genes from the pool.


Mutation is one of the component in evolution. It is not always a bad thing.

BloodyL: Makes me wonder if the Fail is up to some sort of sensationalist staged story trick here.  Can't work out an angle that makes sense, though, but that's usually the same case for half of the stories the Mail runs.


I looked into the photo credits and and the only thing I can fathom is that they had a reporter who was vacationing, had a deadline, and made the non-newsworthy worthy.

sandi_fish: topcon: sandi_fish: That makes me sad.  What kind of human encourages their children to kill innocent animals?

Yeah, because we don't kill millions of animals a year for food that kids eat.

Most of us don't encourage our kids to kill animals for food when it's already plentiful either.

Many people hunt and fish for food, and when you do so you kind of have to kill the animal before you eat it.

It is really annoying that they are basically trashing this guy as an American doing something stupid crazy,

The article clearly states the guy is a greek, that was following a greek tradition

he is now a US citizen, but was following a local custom of his people the greeks

I swear of all the things people are so quick to trash americans about this should not be one of them

Fondle my yambag.  When you've seen as much animal suffering as I have, it becomes a bit of a hot button.

But hey, if YOU can't feel it, it ain't real, amirite?

GungFu: Cut off two legs from a normal octopus and you get a hextopus.

Not that rare, actually.


Reminds me of an old Pogo comic strip.

When trying to pretend to be a moral, upright crusader, it is probably not a good idea to make fun of Asburgers (sic) while you are at it.

Yep, I believe Anthony Bourdain did this.

JeffreyScott: At first I was kind of upset, but then I read all the way to the end of the article where I found this:

FTA: "Biologists say the six-legged hexapus is the result of a natal abnormality as opposed to a new species."

Basically it is not an endangered or rare animal, its more a regular octopus with the equivalent of a birth defect.  So, yawn.


Exactly, but most people can't go a day without having something to be OUTRAAAAAAAAAAAAGED about, and this is as good as anything.

Intentional.

I'm not pretending to a crusader of any sort. I'm just much more sensitive to animal plight than I am human misery.

I think you and I are just wired differently.  We can keep arguing if you want, but I bet we are both willing to give the same amount of ground.

So I'll just give you an eight six finger wave, and go browse some of those crazy animal activist sites I no doubt blog on.

ChipNASA: sandi_fish: That makes me sad.  What kind of human encourages their children to kill innocent animals?


people who need food, some of my fondest memories are of me and my sister cleaning and quartering a deer for our dad because he had a weak stomach for it, was about the only time me and sis got along when we were younger and provided us with meat for a good while.  Humans are omnivores and predators, we are very good at killing other things, though its a shame that this rare octopus was killed I do not blame the person who ate it, at least he didn't just throw it away and waste it.

what makes me sad is the amount of people who have no respect for where their food comes from or the work it takes to produce that food, or the sacrifice of the life that provided that food.  I highly doubt this is the first or the last six tentacled octopus to be eaten by a hungry individual.

mikefinch: I think the problem stems more from the fact they found something rare and unusual and their first reaction was to club it.

"What a freaking looking strange octopus! WHACK"

And as for the sexopus thing -- [upload.wikimedia.org image 220x313]

Its been done.


Ray Harryhausen did it first in 1955 for "It Came From Beneath the Sea." His budget didn't allow for the creation of an 8-tentacled octopus, and the entire creature was never completely revealed on camera, so he only made 6 legs for it. There are a ton of nods to and parodies of Harryhausen's creatures in "Flesh Gordon," especially Nesuahyrrah.

The tentacles (yes, I know they're really arms not tentacles) tend to latch onto your tongue.  That's why you use oil and/or chew and swallow quickly.

/that sounded dirty

I don't know if anybody has ever suggested this to you, but you shouldn't eat the wildlife in a strange place, especially when it hasn't been properly identified. But this seems like the general intelligence level of breeders.

I know people do, but I don't see how anyone looks at something like that and hands it to a kid and says, "Here, you can play with this and pose with it before we kill it and eat it."

If you're calling me a breeder, you have no idea what you're talking about. I am child free. And if you make up your mind about someone's intelligence just because they have children (or are "breeders", to use your childish term), you're a fool.
