I thought we agreed on octopodes for nerds, and octopuses for everyone else.

Its not just staring. You really gotta know how to stare at Mollusks. Completely different skillset from staring at goats.

Can't be much worse than staring at a computer screen for 8 to 10 hours a day. 🤷

A little knowledge of octopus anatomy renders this joke terrifying.

assjuice: recondite cetacean: I thought we agreed on octopodes for nerds, and octopuses for everyone else.

Who the fark is 'we'?


Basic etymology of the word.

It was derived from Greek, and not Latin origins: which means Octopodes. But weirdly, it's Greek inspired, but likely non-Hellenic origins means we should likely follow massive English rules. So, Octopi is likely the only incorrect option. Octopuses (one 's', not Octopusses) and Octopodes would both be a more proper plural.

I will point out, spellcheck is allowing all 3. So, usually bastardization rules apply.

I guess you weren't there that day.  Everyone repeated "so say we all," so it's the law now.
