hey guys here's something for you to munch on... Contrary to popular belief the plural form of the word octopus is not octopi. It is octopodes. The misunderstanding is due to the origins of the word. octopus is not a latin word it is actually greek, therefore the ending isn't the common suffix -pi it is the greek suffix -odes. Entymologists now conclude that it is more proper to say octopuses than octopi because it is closer to the actual plural form of the word octopus (even though in my opinion it is just as construed as octopi). tell me what you think!
