just imagine...

... just exactly how would this work?.. no, wait... never mind.. I don't want to know..

"AN INTERNET video involving a naked woman and an octopus could cost a lot of Dagenham Ford workers their jobs.

According to the Sun, seven workers have been suspended after being caught ogling the images "which were too explicit for a family newspaper".

Apparently the video has been doing the rounds of the network for a few weeks, sucking up bandwidth in a way that only octopussy can.

According to the Sun, workers thought it was all a laugh. Management, whose network tentacles can find suckers everywhere, were not so amused.

Although Ford stopped making cars at three years ago it has 5,000 workers making diesel engines and watching the odd "cephalopod does Dagenham" flick apparently"

... on second thought, my curiosity.. and innate compulsion to rubberneck are driving me crazy... a woman and an octopus?... damn...

... an active imagination can sometimes be a horrible, horrible thing...

Bullshit So Far

I've been reading about Japanese netsuke of late, and it turns out that the woman (or mermaid) and octopus thing has been present in Japanese culture for a long time. I've seen more than one anime depiction, but never a live action video.

By accident, I saw said video...
It is most definitely a train wreck...you know you shouldn't but you just have to keep watching to see what will happen next. It was a little disturbing actually...

So,uh, where can we access said video? For purely academic research, you understand...

Seriously - you need to update with a link.

I miss hockey. What does hockey and octopi have in common? When you watch a Detroit Redwings game and they are in the play offs, people go to great lengths to smuggle them in. Then they fling them on the ice. I often wonder HOW they get those damn things in.
*shuddering*
