Who would have guessed

not me....

Oh great, over the last week I found out that elephants paint, horses count and now it seems octopuses are at it around the clock.

Suzie, full of her usual scintillating riveting banter, rang to tell me about some sophisticated tentacle tangling techniques. Apparently octopuses have erotic sex lives. Go figure.

Many women have experienced men who have arms everywhere but it seems female octopuses may feel our pain. The love life of an octopus involves lots of jealous fighting, casual sex and sneaky cheating. Males display extremely aggressive macho behaviour and fight over females by wrestling each other to the ground and even strangling one another.

I mean who knew? It's always the quiet, shy, solitary ones you've got to watch out for...

PS To my male readers, females love funny guys as opposed to guys with lots of groping arms, so here are the New York Post's 50 most hilarious jokes of the last year. Promise they'll work a charm.

  6. Okay, so if an octopus gets tires of you he/she just squirts ink in your face and darts off. No underlying meaning here, just a thought. ;-)

  7. Matt - see no different from humans are they? Good to see you back.
