While in the store picking up another can of chopped canned clams to add to a recipe of clam chowder I made, a woman who didn't speak English stood next to me, looking at a can of octipus.

She asked me what it was – clams? shrimp? I responded, "No, that's octopus." She looked at me quizzically, so I said "8 tenticles" and moved my fingers around in the air, trying to mimic an octopus. (It's really hard to describe octopus!)

She responded by putting the can down and saying "My stomach… turns." and then walked away.

I'd make a terrible canned octopus saleswoman.
