Sure! The International Day of the Cephalopod should have a special flag.

Come to think of it, now i see why Oct 8 is a good idea- 8th month, 8th day... and now the 8th year!! (you're all thinking,"duh, didn't he see that before?")


Hail squid.

Daddysquoc,
October is a good octopus month name but uhh, it is not August. I know that at some around Julius/Augusts Ceasars' life times the months were rearranged but I don't think October was ever the 8th month :biggrin2:

I've always assumed that at some point, September, October, November, and December were the 7th-10th months until they were given a Cesarian. I think the 10/8 rationale was also partially to include both decapod and octopod cephs, in addition to the October aspect.
