Ye Olde Rubber Octopus?

Yup. As far as I know, sharks don't swim on their sides/backs like this one is pictured to do- it puts them to sleep I think. But this is really cool, even if it was a fake battle.

Shenanigansett, Rhode Island is what I say! There was an octopus, alone and palely loitering, and here comes this guy with a side of beef to engineer a death-battle with some random shark and then the shark eats only one tentacle?

Nevertheless, wonderful.

Jessie: Yeah, the pictures just looked wrong. But wrong in the way I enjoy.

the Indextronatrix!: When are you going to get a profile? Makes it easier for you to track responses. Because I completely agree. Not like, sez I.

Ah! A profile. I think I shall, at some point, today. And therefore I shan't have to backtrack (as I already have). Hmmmm.

Exactly! You just get notices in your email when people respond. Very handy.

Or, maybe it was published by a long dead relative of Uwe Boll? Seems like his kinda thing.
