Re: tavern people are secretly octopuses

I believe that octopuses are one of, if not the most intelligent non-social animals. Considering an octopus has no parents or family to learn from yet still astonish scientist with its cognitive behavior.

A combination of felids and octopodes? Truly, the worst of all worlds.

actually its origins are greek, not latin, and the "proper" plural is "octopodes"

octopuses, octopi, and octopodes are all acceptable, though, on the basis of "who gives a shit, really"

Re: tavern people are secretly octopuses

To the point where wikipedia has a whole section on pluralizing it:
Wikipedia wrote:Etymology and pluralization
The term "octopus" is derived,[44][45] through scientific Latin, from ancient Greek ὀκτώπους ("eight-footed") < ὀκτώ ("eight") and πούς ("foot").[46] (Ancient Greek also had the form ὀκτάπους,[47] which would give "octapus" in English; cf. Modern Greek χταπόδι < οκταπόδι < οκταπόδιον < ὀκτάπους.)

The usual plural in English is "octopuses" (pronounced /ˈɒktəpʊsɪz/), but the Greek plural form "octopodes" (pronounced /ɒkˈtɒpədiːz/) is sometimes used, though less frequently than in the past.[48] The form "octopi", as if the word were a Latin second-declension noun, is generally considered incorrect,[44][48][49][50][51][52] but is in fact used, so that it is registered by the descriptivist Merriam-Webster 11th Collegiate Dictionary, which lists "octopuses" and "octopi", in that order, and Webster's New World College Dictionary, which lists plurals in the order: "octopuses", "octopi", and "octopodes". The Oxford English Dictionary (2008 Draft Revision)[53] also lists "octopuses", "octopi", and "octopodes", in that order, labelling "octopodes" as rare and noting that "octopi" derives from the misapprehension that octōpus is a second-declension Latin noun and stating that, if the word were native to Latin, it would be third declension octōpēs (plural: octōpedes) after the pattern of pēs ("foot", plural pedēs).[54] The New Oxford American Dictionary (3rd Edition 2010) lists only "octopuses" as being the acceptable pluralization, with a usage note indicating "octopodes" as being "still occasionally used", and "octopi" as being "incorrect".[55]

Related to the word "octopus" are the term "Octopoda" (the taxonomic order of cephalopod molluscs that comprises the octopuses) and the adjective "octopoid".[48]

Not having heard of Spongebob is kind of like not having heard of Harry Potter. At one point I'm pretty sure it was statistically impossible to watch an hour of television without seeing at least one Spongebob-related commercial.

It did have the single best episode of a cartoon ever animated so there's that, I guess.

I don't have a television and I live in the UK (where you can get TV without commercials) so I have missed out on that phenomenon.

Re: tavern people are secretly octopuses

In the Uk, Spongebob can only be seen via cable or satellite tv which was uncommon in the 90's and almost household today.

Spongebob was good, the newer episodes are terrible compared to older ones. The makers were probably forced to produce quickly at the expense of quality just to meet the money cow plan formed by the higher ups. A shame because I really liked episodes like "Chocolate with Nuts".

Re: tavern people are secretly octopuses

Regardless of how you label the Octopus in the plural sense(It's Octopodes, deal with it), at least have some consistency OP. You can't have one form in the title, and a different form in the body. That's just objectively incorrect from a proper grammar setting.

Unless...
Unless they were TRYING to get you to respond the way you did. :) Also consistency + internet is a myth.

Tool using Octopi (podes/puses) aren't. :D
