-mandie asked: I can’t speak for anyone else, but I have loved the octopus since I was a child (I’m 23). I like most cephalopods, but octopi are my favorite. They are such beautiful creatures! I mean, they just are fantastic animals. They can hide in small spaces due to a lack of skeleton, have great camoflauge, communicate by their color change, have tentacles, beaks for mouths, smart, squirt ink for a defense, fast in the water, likes cold water (needs it for their blood circulation), they can mimic other animals to fool their predators, etc. There’s just so many cool things about them. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Octopus Oh yeah, they taste good, too. Lol. Also their “meaning” as a symbol describes me quiet well. Here’s a video that might help you (possibly see) why I like them so much: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVvn8dpSAt0
Defensive are we?
Okay, okay! Gosh, I never doubted your affection for the Octopus! Thanks for summarizing the wikipedia page you sent me…I just took your word for it. :P As for their “meaning” I came across a lot of good things like “creativity” and”flexibility”. But even more so octopi are very deceptive and defensive creatures. So can “possibly see” your fascination with them…like I get it. I was simply pointing out how hilarious that ‘hipsters’ are
pretending to be OBSESSED about this fucking deep sea creature. All these ‘How to Be Hipster’ websites are called AESTHETICOCTOPUS.com and PHDOCTOPUS.com and OCTOPUSPIE.com…like come on!! Let’s face it…the octopus is the new owl.
