Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, November 03, 2017

When Brett Stones and his dolphin-watching tour group SeaMor finished their evening excursion last Friday in Wales, it was already dark out. In the distance, they spotted something with an indiscernible yet familiar shape.

"It looked like a bit of a blob," said Stones. When the group approached, they saw that it was a curled octopus, a species commonly found off the beaches of Ceredigion.

Roughly a foot long, the animal was crawling about 30 feet inland. And it wasn't alone. As they walked through the area, they found 20 to 30 more octopuses seemingly crawling on land, in a space about half as big as a soccer field.

"It sort of brings out this mothering instinct. You just want to save them," said Stones. "It's quite emotional to see them flailing."

Wait, the article says they always crawl out the sea while we are asleep. And this ------ wants to save them? Shouldn't we arming ourselves with shotguns and chainsaws like in "Doom" or something? Okay, I'll go back to reading the article.

Okay, the article just used used the phrase "inexplicably dead", just 23 words from the word "tentacles". That's not right. If I was there, I would have retreated while laying down a suppressive fire, and tried to call in an airstrike. In a worst case scenario, I would have asked the POTUS for nuclear release on my position.

Oh. Not the giant kind. Just saw the video. Was kind of worried there for a second, but things are okay now.

Sort of makes you want to splurge a little on sushi, actually.

Hey NatGeo, soccer is played on a pitch, not a field. Jeez, get an editor already.
