These sheepish octopuses made part of a border around a page with a version of the boy who cried wolf.






Seems Walt Kelly shared our obsession.

I've two signed originals on my wall at home .... wonder if I should copy them and place 'em online?

Hey! Did you know that the comic Mutts had an *adorable* comic involving a cuttlefish?? :biggrin2:

While the dog and cat were gazing into the water off a dock they were standing on, cat in the spied a cuttlefish in the water. He mentioned to the dog that cuttlefish communicate by altering the color of their bodies. As an experiment, he stuck his head underwater, which turned a few colors due to the fact that he was holding his breath. The cuttlefish then looks aghast, and smacks him across the face with a tentacle, and then swims off. The cat looks at the dog, shrugs, and quips, "...must've been something I said!" :lol:

Dunno if you could access it online, but when I saw that sucker in the Sunday Times, i cut it right out. I can't wait to pin it back up on my dorm room desk, where it belongs. 8)

Later! :heee:
