Dr. Roland Anderson (of the Seattle Aquarium) has passed on the following octopus pick-up lines, courtesy of Christin Boyd, an interpretive volunteer. Perhaps they'll work for you as well? Top 5 Octopus pick up lines: I really respect a mollusk who doesn't have to hide in a shell, and can just be herself. Your beak says no, but your hearts say yes, no, and maybe. Some scientists classify me as "vulgaris", but I'm really sweet once you get to know me. Once you've had me, baby, you'll never go back; mostly because you'll starve to death while protecting your eggs. Do ya mind if I stick this under your mantle?
