Wasn't this a story line on Resident Alien? Not sure if scientists are writing that show or comedians are writing scientific papers these days.


How long before our octopus overlords find their way to Washington?

The octopus is already running things there, and one could say that the Citizens are In a state of Angst.

They must be Klingons

Funny, I though cats came from outer space.

Of course, given the explanation in the paper, pretty much everything is an alien, including us.

We all know somebody we feel pretty sure can't possibly be from this planet, and no doubt Le Pet's neighbors can confirm it.

It really doesn't matter where in the multiverse the octopus comes from as long as it's prepared well. I may have jumped the gun here. Are Australian octopi venomous? That would require special protective measures. However, here are some great recipes for a regular octopus we can serve now.


Le Pet, the blue-ringed octopus, which indeed does live in Australia, is one of the deadliest animals on earth. If one bites you, you'll likely die before you can get to a hospital.
