Octopus yoga

This one has already been all over Digg and Boing Boing, but I can’t resist. Behold: An octopus escaping from an underground box by squeezing its entire body through a teensy one-inch hole.

As I’ve been warning for years — as soon as these guys get tired of our crap, we are doomed. Why hasn’t someone made a movie about octopuses rising up from the briny deepy, penetrating our trillion-dollar anti-celaphopod national defenses by squeezing under door-cracks, and just totally handing Western civilization its ass? Possibly because it would be too close to the terrifying truth.
