    Here's a thread for any quotes we comes across where the speaker (should be renown) invokes the image of a cephalopod...

    "Oh, I love hugging. I wish I was an octopus, so I could hug 10 people at a time!"
    -- Drew Barrymore, Actress

    THE OCTOPUS

    Tell me, O Octopus, I begs
    Is those things arms, or is they legs?
    I marvel at thee, Octopus;
    If I were thou, I'd call me Us.

    - Ogden Nash

    Another one:

    "Talent without discipline is like an octopus on roller skates. There's plenty of movement, but you never know if it's going to be forward, backwards, or sideways."
