A few words about Oct-To-Pie:
I woke up last Friday and before I could even attempt to sit up...I had an Octopi sitting on my chest. It's been trying to suffocate me all weekend with its constraints, each arm worse than the next -- crushing the very breathe and life right out of ME.
So, naturally, I called upon the Wise and Wonderful fafnir for his *expertise* in these matters: ""What says the 'O' Wise and Wonderful faf? How does one "leech" this Inkie-Armed set of constraints, tentacle by tentacle, from off of my psychie? It's a strong an tenacious critter too...but yer reference books must say sumpthing bout this phenom...
It's another Pie-Blogging Friday...but I is beset by them Octopi. Help"
Finally, after a few struggles on my own, faf was able to e-mail me these most *useful* and *worthwhile* instructions:
"Hmmm! I only know one octopus an he's pretty small an lazy so this might not work with your more tenacious sea beast types but it's worth
What you wanna do see, is you wanna grab him by the lumpular
octopulus mass an pull im loose from there with one sharp tug like a
band-aid. Then once he's loose stick im in a specially-designed
octobox where your octopus can live comfortably contained.
Feed him brussel sprouts an leafy greens."
And ya know WHAT...worked just like a "Charm" and I is Oct-To-Pie FREE. Hip-Hip-hooray!! (Mike are ya listening here???)
But I've got to put a strong and large LOCK upon his cage -- cause Oct-to-Pie is cunning and sneaky and might escape without extra precautions. Why, if ya don't believe ME, just check out The Octopus Show (Nature/PBS) sometime; and SEE if I'm not 100% correct about these voracious multi-tentacled sea -beasts. And Always keep yer Oct-To-Pie under lock and key!!
