I'm not trying to be funny or anything but do you guys eat fried calamari? I always eat it because my family is Greek, but today at dinner I almost felt quilty eating octopus. Im almost scared that my yiayai will fry up my dwarf octo LOL.
I think much of Greek cuisine does incorporate octopus (and often called 'calamari'). And I have definitely seen what is billed as 'squid' turn out to be octopus once it arrives on the plate - not everyone realizes that giving an accurate name is important, since some people will happily eat one but not the other.
