They're pop singers with big hair?

The first time I learned about cuttlefish, I was at an aquarium with my FIL. He's been fascinated by fish and sea creatures for a long time, and he had just purchased a Canon XL-1 mini DV camera. So he's just videoing the cuttlefish going though its color changes.
I walk up, and faking an outrageous French accent, start doing a Jacques Cousteau-esque narration.

/It was funny at the time.

They make disco lights? Or they're terrifying?

No they don't. I only know what one of those things are.

When I close my eyes, the universe disappears.

Has sexy self control

There's a test by which you leave a child in a room alone with a marshmallow, promising they can have it (and another one, for two marshmallows) if they don't eat it. It's a small child, like 5 or so. As I understand it the test is supposed to be about self-control, but mainly what it measures is food insecurity.

Makes you wonder about the conditions in which the research subjects are kept, like whether they're being fed regularly, etc.

They're the spitting image of my first girlfriend?

/I'll let you decide whether I'm talking about Laura or a cuttlefish.

They both have lights on their sides?

The delicious ones are.

They're edible? Like, enjoyably so? Certainly do not look appetizing to my stomach's eye.

Birds like to nibble their bones?

I'm sure the cuttlefish has some level of self control, but the thing attached to it is a whole different farking story.
