i had never seen the show before but last night the tv was on and octopi played a significant role... people were eating octos whole, wrapped around a stick at some kind of 'exotic food' thing... at one point someone says that if theyre not wrapped right (presumably to occupy the arms) it'll kill you... long story short, death by octo...

A video just floated around here with Koreans, I think, eating live octopus. They were definitely wrapping the octos on chopsticks in a specific way, though they never mentioned anything about death. Hmmmm...interesting...

Cheers!

in the show it was entire octos, not just a still squirming arm or other body part loped off...
