This may be the shortest and most uninformative article of all time, but it would be of interest to anyone in proximity of the Cornwall aquarium, if only because they could go there and try to get more info. Is "Squirt" the same octopus that has gotten PR from the latest round of "shrimp in a jar" experiments?

Probably one of my greatest desires ever for a captive octopus would be to utilize it this way in some "Crime of the Century", but I frankly, just don't buy it. Has anybody heard anything else? I really, really doubt this one.

I find your lack of faith disturbing

To restate my first post, I am guessing that this article *is* in reference to the "shrimp in a jar" experiements, with obligatory sensationalization.

Ah, sh***y journalism triumphant, once again. I love how this just keeps going around and around indefinitely.

Boy I wish they could crack safes. I'd start raising them immediately.
