I would approve of an initiative that replaced all public symbols of the Confederacy with purple octopuses, especially Stone Mountain.

Why are we assuming it is a female squid and not just a gender neutral squid who likes wearing dresses on a bicycle?

At first glance I thought it was the return of Joe Camel.

A brit sees his friend in a pub and tosses an ailing cephalopod on the table.

"Here's the sick squid I owe you."

FTFA: "The original mural featured the queen - with goose - on a bike, as well as a purple octopus being towed by a second goose."
I'm not really seeing much change here, TBH.  Maybe better acid?

When I first saw Joe Camel billboards back in the day, I didn't recognize it as a camel.  My only guesses were scrotum (unlikely) and octopus (very slightly more likely).

Metastatic Capricorn: [Fark user image 850x587]


I honestly think if I saw that spraypainted on the wall at a business I owned or something... I mean I'd want to be mad but... that's some fine work right there
