Trivia:  The proper plural of "octopus" is "octopodes" if you want to get pedantic.

Octopus is a Greek word.  Using the "i" for pluralizing is Latin.

A US citizen told how he caught and ate an octopus on holiday - only to discover it was the second rare six-legged specimen ever found.

Mechanical engineer Labros Hydras, 49, pulled the creature - dubbed a 'hexapus' - from the sea as he went snorkelling in Greece.


Oh great, and we're going to get blamed because he became an American before he did it.

More assinine was the fact the chef refused to cook it because it was so rare then this moron goes and does it anyway.

What's the big deal? It's an obvious mutation. So what? Not like the thing spoke to them in Spanish or something.

AeAe: Octopus is a GreekEnglish word.


We speak English. We took the word as our own; we'll pluralize it how we see fit.

sandi_fish: What kind of human encourages their children to kill innocent animals?


It's called "food". We've been doing it for millions of years, us carnivores.
 
2013-07-26 02:07:25 PM
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.
 
2013-07-26 02:15:14 PM
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.

One the one hand, just a birth defect, so not that big of an outrage. On the other hand.... Octopi are very intelligent and one of the few creatures I would really feel guilty eating. Still, shouldn't be news (though I am grateful to read anything not about that damned royal baby).

A lot of high quality photos documenting the demise and consumption of this 'hexapus,' from start to finish.  I've only seen a few family vacation slideshows but there's never been 11 photos like in the story, including the glamorous after shot with the cooked octopus.

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.

Trivia: the correct pluralization of "octopus" is "octopuses."

Merriam-Webster also says "octopi" is acceptable, but I'd suggest sticking to "octopuses" to avoid annoying pedants (especially as they're wrong).

Oh I have no issue with eating octopus per se, I was just more depressed given the rarity and all that whatnot.  Though I generally try not to eat animals that are smarter than me.  And yes, that eliminates many of them.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.


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.

ciberido: airsupport: Smashing its head on a rock?

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.

Should I file you under "self-righteous vegetarian" or "hypocrite"?


Dim Sum Aficionado is what most people use
