Octopi On The Blog Again

All this countdown to the holiday season, and I've singularly failed to blog anything festive yet. Tsk. So, given that it's carrying both a tool and a tree and thus about the most relevant post this blog has seen in days, how about an Ax Wielding Octopus?

Because nothing says Christmas like Ax Wielding Octopi, am I right? Although admittedly, in this picture, he/she/it looks a little like he/she/it is contemplating ending it all with said edge tool, rather than going on a tree felling spree. Which, from a certain (cynical) angle, maybe says a lot about Christmas too...

Or is that just me?

Yet more extraordinary creations in felt viewable here, and the maker's website. Amazing and amusing, which is always a good combination.

  1. Finally, another Cynic!

    I have to say, seeing a cretacian ending it all in front of the tree would certainly make for a season to remember. My guess is that he'd probably be crying, wearing a Santa hat, have a bottle of gin in another tentacle, would be babbling something that was angry and incoherent, and gesticulating angrily at the radiator, front door, and the crown molding.

    Throw in a tipped over bowl of pretzels, a table on fire from a tipped over candle,
    three crying children,
    two turtle doves,
    and a big, dead octopiiiiii...

    I need more coffee, clearly.

    Survive the season as best you can, Alf. You're not alone.
