    I love cephalopods. It`s a good thing that they have short lifespans or they`d kill us all.

    Failure. If you wnat to be really anal about it, out of Octopi, Octopuses and Octopodes, only the former is etymologically incorrect. But either octopi or octopuses are both entirely correct forms in english.

    p.s. I`m not being a Grammar Nazi, I`m being a Counter-Grammar-Nazi. Think of me as a Grammar Ally.

    You know, not EVERY NEW "The Oatmeal" article needs to be posted here. Maybe a few funny ones... but not every single one. This one, we could have done without.

    Also, We don`t need an Atomfilm-a-day thing either. I would gladly go a month without and not miss it.

    "some one needs to tell this person its `octopi` not octopuses"

    Actually, at the end of the article, TheOatmeal says
    "Note: In order to thwart a bunch of emails, I`d like to point out that octopuses, octopi, and octopodes are all acceptable ways to pluralize octopus."

    TECHNICALLY, the correct term is octopuses. But yes, all are accepted.

    Also, as a zoology major who wants to focus in marine invertebrate zoology, this just tickles my fancy :D

    "Mothers sacrifice their own happiness for the betterment of their offspring."
    All those things octopus moms do and my mom doesn`t even do the one thing mentioned in the description that human moms are supposed to do. I`m going to go cry myself to sleep now... |-(

    "420foy: some one needs to tell this person its `octopi` not octopuses"

    If you`re going to correct someone on their grammar or spelling, I suggest that yours should also be mistake-free. In this case, you should at least use `someone` and "it`s."
