This octopus is such a chick!

Check out this ‘eyelashed’, small-moufed, pink CHICK!

She’s all; "Step aside and watch me text eight people at once, Bitches!"


OMG, Catrina C.!



  1. Space Cowgirl says:

    She looks like an anti-stress squeezy toy. Do want!

  2. cute cute xo

  3. Biscuit Tin says:

    Eyelashes? Mouth? Um…I can’t see those. Sorry! A little help, anyone?

  4. Biscuit Tin says:

    Oh, wait. I get it. It’s “eyelashed” in quotes – I see the marks. I get it. *Goes to get more coffee*

  5. I dont think I have ever seen such a cute octopus in my life… lol Dont let the japanese get a hold of this picture or we will have hello octy dolls everywhere heheh..

  6. Can have in Wisconsin?

  7. momof2kitties says:

    She (He?) looks just like Nemo’s octopus school buddy.

    Awww, you made me ink!!!!!

  8. Is it weird that I want to nom that octopus?

  9. Oh, a real octopussy? That is a very delicate operation – to use the eyelash curlers on her mini-tentacles. She looks all pink and frilly though. So cute!

  10. Brandi7920 says:

    She’s all glittery!!

    and LOL at the ‘auwww, you made me ink’ comment. LOL (I nearly choked on my soda!)

  11. Sweet pink octopus
    your tentacles wave softly
    embraced by the sea.

  12. It’s Hello Kitty’s octopus friend Squishy-kun!

  13. Reminds me of a sugar covered jelly sweet.

  14. I too want to nom that octopus, it looks delightfully chewy, like pink bubble gum.

  15. momof2kitties-“You made me ink!” *snerk!*

    Such a sugary looking treat!

  16. firefinch says:

    Much cuter than the ones that get thrown onto the ice at the Joe Louis Arena.

  17. OMG! Could it be any cuter?

  18. Are we sure that the Japanese didn’t create this in a secret super-cute-making laboratory?

  19. I seriously thought this was a plushie at first – just for a second. 🙂

  20. Hooray Pharyngula!

  21. Is that covered in glitter or just my imagination…

    Oh sorry just my imagination…

    Lisa Frank anyone.

  22. CoffeeCup says:

    Calamari jokes on the next aisle! Until we get a cute squid, we’re just going to have to stick to octy jokes.

    Such a cute little thing, but she does look a little angry…like someone hasn’t picked up around the coral reef. She’s looking at you, with the eight tentacles. Did you pick up the little ones from anemone school? No? Shame on you for forgetting your own children in the open sea – we’re endangered!

    I have no idea whether these things are endangered, my mind just wandered into a marital-type conversation in which mom squid and dad squid are arguing, and perhaps mom squid also looks like a baby alien from the Alien movies…so this has turned into “aw cute” to “don’t. eat. me!”

  23. Hey ding! I love your haiku!

  24. Beccity98 says:

    Looks just like a mochi! I want to nom some octopus shaped treat!


  26. I don’t even like pink things very much — but on an octopus it is TOO KEEYUTE.

    Also, I like to imagine that though this octopus looks like it might be tiny, it’s actually FIFTY FEET TALL and tippy-toeing her way through the streets of NY!!!

  27. kultgirl: you could always knit or crochet one… 😀

    Or have one knit/crochet for you!

    (google amigurumi)

  28. Love the “text 8 people at once, bitches.” yeah, true dat.

  29. Just in time for Christmas – Octopus Barbie! Mom, can I have one? Please, please, please, please, please?

  30. ::evil hand rubbing::

    Bitches? Excellent… Let the nuffing begin! 😀

  31. @coffeeCup: See the cute baby squidlike alien from “Men in Black”?

  32. Hi Jezebel! Thanks for noticing my haiku!

  33. warrior rabbit says:

    Is this a nuclear octopus? She seems a little…glowy.

  34. balamuthia says:

    What a little cutie, it does look just like a squeeze toy!

    aaaand “sexism” nuffers in 3…2…1….

  35. yankeebird says:

    Sweet! It was so much fun last time Meg said bitches.

    @ Bean: Hey, I have the same shirt as your wife. “Tuesday’s Gonna Be Rough” I wore it yesterday.

  36. I see I’m not the only one who immediately thought of “Finding Nemo” …

  37. Boomer's Babysitter says:

    It looks almost delicately fuzzy… or frosted with that crackly frost that adorns windows where it’s cold enough (not here, though). I’m sure there’s a name for it – but it’s been 20 years since I lived where it snows.

  38. ThreeCatNight says:

    Ninja-Octo, ready to strike with eight delicate but lethal arms!

  39. ellie in Flint says:

    I no like. Too blorby!

  40. Octopususes scare me. It’s like eight snakes at once.

    But this one is cute.

  41. Capt' Tightpants says:

    I shall call her Squishy, and she shall be mine. Here, little Squishy! Here Squishy!


    Bad Squishy!

  42. Mary (the first) says:

    @Ding, I also enjoyed the haiku. Seems like in a previous post, someone haiku’d, was that you? Can we look forward to more?
    Not to mention, the adorabuhls octypoo although he does kind of look like those big head people that were on the old Star Trek once.. does anyone know who I mean..

  43. adorable octopus.To Bean that’s a nice tattoo your wife has.

  44. Gail (the first one) says:

    @Mary The 1st: I know exactly who you mean…..yes, I’ve watched too much Star Trek. (Dammit, Jim, I’m a doctor not a marine biologist!) Chalk up another reason for my spinsterhood (besides not knowing the “mistletoe rules” laid out in the previous post)!!

  45. I love it! I never thought an octopus could be so cute!

  46. Love the most subtle of octo-smiles 🙂

  47. BLORP!

  48. pinkmariposas says:

    OMG, look clooosley folks
    does this not look like
    an ailien? So pinky and
    glitter-ishy! It does like
    a squishy toy, my doggie
    would want to nom it.
    This does not look like the
    lil octipi that my X
    used to like to EAT!!!
    would it taste like a
    jelly bean??? oops sorry.

  49. Omg it looks just like Pearl from Finding Nemo. So cute!

  50. warrior rabbit says:

    Wait…Is that the episode with Captain Pike? Or another one?

  51. totalee puppy says:

    from “Paper Moon”
    “Honey, this lil baby has to inky-
    dink again…”
    “We got to stop. Miss Julia has to go to the bathroom…”
    Tatum O’Neal…”She inky-dinked at lunch!!”
    (sorry for bad spelling)

  52. omg. i would totally wear her as an adornment on a froufy dress.

  53. totalee puppy says:

  54. eikoleigh says:

  55. octostubbular

  56. a.dor.a.buhls.

    *girlie moment!*

  57. says:

    LOVEEEEEE the sweet lil octo! I want to knit her a hat and 8 mittens.

  58. This is cute, but oddly…fetal.

    Trin, I totally want to crochet an octopus amigurumi now. 🙂

  59. I also thought she looks like an alien…. Star Treky or otherwise.
    By the way, not to be controversial but how do we know *she* is a “she”??
    (ducks for cover).

  60. Wow. So what is her actual size? Is she a baby? Wow, again. She looks like a Gummi.
