I'm going down to to the octopus's Farm
Gonna join in a rock and roll band
Got to get back to the land and set my filet of sole free

We are starfish, we are golden
We are billion year old carbon
And we got to get ourselves back to the garden

Second verse same as the first

I'm Henry the eighth I am
Henry the eighth I am, I am

Sounds like another cover story for some sort of deep-state clandestine operation.

Sounds like Mr. Octopus just needs a good lawyer. He should ask Mr. Shark for a referral.

Not after watching My Octopus Teacher .. I agree it would be wrong.

I suppose this will be called an "Octopus's Garden". Will Ringo be there ?

This Octopus Garden will help solve the riddle of Ringo being the surviving original Beatle.

I'd love to watch them plant the south 40.

I can't understand why octopuses can't be farmers if they chose to. They would excel at picking row crops such as grapes and maybe hops. Both are vital ingredients to what it takes to hang on nowadays.

Octopus farm--It sounds nasty
Octopus farm-- It pretty much is
Octopus farm--It's a slimy joint
Octopus farm--It's a sushi bar

Can't we just seed them in south Florida and harvest them as free-range organic octopi, and will they eat the iguanas?

"The mating ritual for the blue-ringed octopus begins when a male approaches a female and begins to caress her with his modified arm, the hectocotylus. A male mates with a female by grabbing her, which sometimes completely obscures the female's vision, then transferring sperm packets by inserting his hectocotylus into her mantle cavity repeatedly. Mating continues until the female has had enough, and in at least one species the female has to remove the over-enthusiastic male by force."

Boy they sound like humans. No mention of chocolate though.
