Merry Cephalopodmas!

I was actually discussing with a chap on the bus this morning if it was appropriate or not to eat calamari on Cephalopodmas.

I'm so sorry. I thought this was posted on molluscious, where such sentiments are commonplace.

This'll be the best Cephalopodmas ever!

Love the banner, mind if I snurch it (with credit)?

Grimpoteuthis now holds my top slot for cutest thing ever. Although have you noticed how much they resemble the brain slugs from Futurama?

Once again, you demonstrate why my quitting writing was such a good idea. How the hell could I top that?

Suction Cups Nipping at Your Nose...
Spectacular. It's a jolly holiday carol and a trip to the aquarium for all. My lips haven't fumbled over a line of verse like this since I was in grade school, but I was glad to have the opportunity to attempt it.

Damn. Where's Burl Ives when we need him now?
Or maybe Muppets. Maybe.

That's marvelous.

(The montage of cephalopods is also quite nice, too.)

Squidtastic! If this were a perfect world, the owner of cephalopodmas.org would have missed his flight and would still be home to post this on the site... hey, wait a second!
