I don't think I'd want all the kids hanging out in my garden in the shade. I mean... sure, I'd be cool with it at first, just because that's the kind of "octupus" I am, but It would get really old, really fast. They'd be all like "Hey there, Mr. Octupus won't you let us in" and I'd be like "Hell no! I know where you've been, in that little hide-away behind the bushes... desecrating my tulips!" and then I'd give them a mean look untill they go away.



If you were an octopus, and there were filthy little bastards running around in your garden, how would you deal with 'em? <- you must be this high to ride this post
are you lightfooted?

History shows again and again how octopi hate the folly of man.

Octopi also have beaks, so perhaps some sort of pecking injuries could be applied. The more I think about it, a well trained octopus can be a very deadly thing! Thier smart buggers too I'm told.

I'm not certain I'd want to deal with the lawsuits that might entail though. Then again I could very well be in international waters and therefore not applicable to law. Setting booby-traps that flinged projectile sea urchin quills would do nice to keep the punks at bay.

No I think I saw an episode of 'The Angry Beavers' where a concert had the opposite effect, and ended up attracting a bunch of hippies and their filthy offspring that play in mud puddles. The point is to keep the garden children free, and fairly clean.

Or you can use the drugs from the hippies to mellow out and not care, but it will only be a matter of time before they're walking all over you. No, you can't let them get to you, they gotta go.

i forgot to mention that there would be cannons placed in the speakers and they would shoot out bombs to blow all the hippies up.... every last one of them.

If I were an octopus, I'd be totally lit all the time and play with my suction cup thingys to see what they would stick to.
