Photo of pink octopus showing several arms with suction cupsIn honor of Klout thinking for some unknown reason that I’m influential about octopuses I thought I’d resurrect and oldie-but-a-goodie and a favorite of mine “Octopus steals camera.”

I can’t tell you how much it pleases me to be thought of influential about cephalopods. So, naturally, I have to live up to the sadly misguided idea for at least a day or so.

Hm..now that I give it a little thought I HAVE shared at least a small handful of octopus-related posts and I do tend to tweet nautilus related ephemera whenever I come across it. (I mean how can I Close up of octopus suction cupsnot?! Any animal that has suction cups equipped with receptors that allow it to taste what it is touching is just freaking awesome.)

Here are a couple of past octopus posts for an appetizer:
