Rambopus

This octopus in Santa Monica got pissed off over a fill tube someone put in her tank. So she flicked it the hell out of there. Only problem was that it flooded the building.

So, is she a liberal or a conservative? I like her. I'm sort of hoping she's on our team. She could be a liability with a temper like that, but I think the gung-ho attitude is worth it. Anybody out there have a tiny waterproof Obama tee shirt with eight armholes?

My only Q is why CNN even thinks this is newsworthy ....

Speaking of arms, apparently CNN thinks this is also newsworthy ...

Hi Amy,

Michelle's arms? Guess I'm not one to talk seeing as I blog about disposable razors and shitty beer.

erf!

I live within a stone's throw of Santa Monica. I can actually see the pier from here. Yet I'm getting this "breaking news" story from you in *Ohio*. For some reason, I find this terribly amusing.

(And I mean that in a good way. I'm not being sarcastic at all. I just find it funny.)

Thanks, cap'm!

DDP: I thought the story was hilarious. The idea of the octopus protesting a change to her environs by chucking the tube cracked me up.

Octopus are seriously difficult to keep!

Apparently they will break out of their tanks in order to search for food; they're clever enough to escape but not clever enough to realize that once they're out of the water their lack of a skeleton makes them unable to move.

Silly Octopus.

Drats! There doesn't appear to be video of Christine Lavin singing "Santa Monica Pier" on YouTube.
