Wednesday Octopus

Except this is a cuttlefish, which is the same as an octopus or a squid, except instead of playing up the Cthulu-Weird and Glittery-Alien roles, a cuttlefish just gets down to business.



A cuttlefish is the bubba of the octopus world. Sashays along, sees a prey animal, shoots it, boogies right on. I'm glad I'm not on the cuttlefish menu, as their hunting seems...lethal.

"Sashay" is such a gud werd. Are you sure he was sashaying, though? The Saturday Night Fever theme gave me more the impression of a swagger.

Dictionary.com seems to agree there's a bit of a swagger in a sashay.

sa·shay
verb /saˈSHā/ 

Walk in an ostentatious yet casual manner, typically with exaggerated movements of the hips and shoulders
- Louise was sashaying along in a long black satin dress

But I'll take "swagger" as a description of the badass cuttlefish!
