This week's Friday Cephalopod is reader submitted. Sepioteuthis lessoniana And there's more at Andre Seale's gallery!
tags: underwater art, nature, photography, Andre Seale, streaming video This video was sent to me by a Brazilian blog pal who "reads my blog every day"! It is a collection of beautiful nature images by award-winning photographer Andre Seale, who happens to be her husband. The soothing music was…
See?Photo by Andre Seale You're looking at Me, Lucia Malla (a fellow blogger, but in Portugese! How cool is that?!) and, of course, PZ Myers, just after he got leid. Isn't he just glowing? We managed to track down PZ Myers at the Society for Developmental Biology's West Coast Regional Meeting here…

Reminds me of the radicals during my undergraduate days. Power to the cephalopods.

I'm pretty sure he is threatening the cephalopod girl in Santa Monica who messed up the World-Takeover-Schedule.

Where did you get that photo of my sister ????

Looks kind of like Thrakazog from The Tick.

The Tick?

I am MIGHTY! I have a glow you cannot see. I have a heart as big as the moon, as warm as bathwater. We're superheroes, man! We don't have time to be charming! The boots of evil were made for walking. We're watching the big picture, friend. We know the score. We are a public service, not glamour boys! Not captains of industry! Not makers of... things! Keep your vulgar monies. We are a justice sandwich, no toppings necessary! Living rooms of America, do you catch my drift? Do... you... dig?

What's that it's got in its hand?

Looks threatening to me!

I am surprised so many of our leaders are not taking this threat seriously.

What moves has the UN made to address this?

Well, Ramases, the UN has decided that the cephalopod can only say nice things about religion.

PZ, I think that cephalopod is giving you the tentacle!

Looks like Stephen Colbert yelling "Gore!"

Squid Heil!
So Ben Stein was right about evolution after all!

Come on you people. Otto is just putting on a puppet show! "Does Bunny Wabbit wanna play? Play, Wabbit, play!"

I don't know. I just don't know.
Kinda looks like...
Cephalopod pretending to be an elephant to me.
You know how those cephalopods are.

I feel...

Rosie the Riveter's got nothing on him!

Isn't the "smile" his/her eye?

By Faithful Reader (not verified) on 27 Feb 2009 #permalink


Yep. That's an eye. You can tell by the "w" shaped pupil.

What do we want?
When do we want 'em?
Pretty much all the time!

The Mollusks! United! Will never be defeated!

It looks like a cephalopod version of flipping us the bird. Or would that be flipping the exocoetida?

Shake harder, boy!

PZ, you have coolest collection of Cephalopods. I am heading out to British Columbia this summer to hunt (aka photograph) the Giant Pacific Octopus. If I get lucky I'll send you a copy of the pictures for you and other to enjoy.

I had cephalopod in my seafood salad tonight.
