    You mean you didn’t immediately think of the 24-tentacled octopus from Schoolhouse Rock’s “Three is a magic number?”

  3. TEKNA2007 says:

    That octopus died of indecision.

    I was only wondering why this was not tagged Cthulhu? What do you mean there is nu Cthulhu tag? I thought this was BoingBoing?

    hey! speaking of the grotesque, the monstrous and the unexpected: what did you think of Hellboy 2? Loved the Troll Market!

  9. ROSSINDETROIT says:

    Hellboy II was great. Best Fantasy based film I’ve seen in a long time. Thank The Gods for G. Del Toro.

  10. Takuan says:

    That Wink character was so seamless in CG I thought of it as an actor throughout. Great work there. The Golden Army didn’t quite though.

    Can this be the opposite of a unicorn chaser from now on?

    It wasn’t more than a decade ago that Mike Mignola could be found sitting at a table at a Comic Con chatting with a couple of fans and signing comics. He sold me a Hellboy pin that’s still on my motorcycle jacket. It’s gratifying that an original talent has been recognized and promoted. I look forward to Hellboy III: The Terrible Twins Arrive.

  14. DocFish says:

    hmmm wonder if he was left or right tentacled?

  15. SeppTB says:

    But does it favor one of the 96 tentacles more than the others, and how quickly can it solve a rubik’s cube?

    Nagasaki? Hiroshima? Genetic Mutation? Nah….

    “abnormal regeneration”, like in the last Doctor Who?

    You can get an understanding of how something like this can happen by reading Sean Carroll’s Endless Forms Most Beautiful.

    Surely, it is a sign from the FSM. Top that, tortilla Jesus!

    Fractal Octopus would be a great name for a techno band.

    They didn’t find this octopus near the new accelerator at CERN, did they?

    “Abnormal regeneration”? Sound like a TUMOR!

  37. WadeFranklin says:

    Too many tentacles
    for one octopus
    to be writhing

    You’re gonna writhe
    writhe, writhe, writhe
    ninety-six tentacles
