Up a Tree X 8

An octopus in the sea

decided “Hey, this isn’t for me.” 

Climbing out of the muck

 said “If my life’s going to suck

I might as well be up a tree.”

The Pacific Northwest tree octopus (Octopus paxarbolis) apparently was first sighted in the temperate rain forests of the Olympic Peninsula on the west coast of North America.  

However, since octopi, or more grammatically proper, octopuses (crediting Maggie Wilson , The Zombies Ate My Brain, for this important research) , are extremely intelligent  (“Some evolutionary theorists suppose that ‘arboreal adaptation’ is what laid the groundwork in primates for the evolution of the human mind.”) it appears tree octopuses are acclimating to harsher and milder climes in their quest for survival.  

 Check out sightings of the ALLEGED tree Octopus here.

Thanks to Jacqui Murray for helping to make me, her public, aware of this, ahem, “endangered species

  2. Judy, wanna go on a snipe hunt? Take a flashlight – it’s dark out there. You’ll be fine alone in the wilderness – you aren’t a scaredy cat. I’ll wait for you back at the campfire.

    1. Shari, B-P,
      I would have taken you up on your offer to go on a snipe hunt UNTIL I heard “heh heh heh”. Now I can’t trust that you’ll wait for me back at the campfire to see all the snipes I’ve collected.
