I've got one that I call 'Asterisk'. They are good fun and strangely photogenic too. Check out the 'Cephalopod Chronicles' in the humor links section.

I've got two of these - Otto and Lenya von Bruno - that I've had for close to 15 years. The construction quality is pretty good on these octo puppets.

I recognize him - that's Bill the Octopus who's sitting here by my laptop!
Bill, under another name, was the octopus who went mountain climbing and had other adventures.

Hey there! Very cool to see yet another relative of The Octopus out there: http://www.angio.net/~reagan/octopus.html. We ought to have an octopus convention at some point and get all these critters together in one place!

I can say that after 10 years and tens of thousands of miles, this little guy just keeps on ticking. If there's a more durable toy out there, I'd like to see it!

How cool is this???? Note we are even linked!!!! Gives me thoughts...Too bad we couldn't start our own little adventure by mailing him to all our members for a visit!!! I'd be game and willing to let mine loose!!! And where would his first visit be???I personally think our fearless leader!!! We could submit photos of each member who he visits and start a thread of his adventures!!!!

What do you all think???

I think it would be fun. You don't even have to mail The Octopus to me, since I have one! Maybe I'll take him to Galveston the next time.

I think he should be sent to our friends outside the US, too.

Wouldn't need to post it to me either, cos like Nancy....got one.....I gave in! Will need to think a bout a pic of me tho' I usually run a mile when I see a camera lens pointed in my direction. The closest we've got
is a pic of my :feet: in the :feet: thread next to one of Steve's defrosting, aromatic research subjects!

hmmm

I kind of liked the idea of just one being mailed about though...seeing an old friend in different climes all the time !!!!

Maybe make him a little distinctive? Blue rings? A Tonmo badge? any ideas???
