Day 1315 - Octomozzy

Last Tuesday, Astra had a bit of banter in The Twitterdilly Arms with one of the other regulars, about being one half (or one quarter, it wasn't made clear) of an octopus! The conversation was reported on FTM by the mechanical orange here: Day 1308 FTM Comments.

This morning, a video has been posted on TTY with the heading, The World WILL listen. The video features a little boy who refuses his mothers instruction to eat his octopus gnocchi, on the grounds that an octopus is an animal, and animals shouldn't be eaten.



The video has been around for two years, so it is rather coincidental that a video featuring an octopus should appear on TTY in the same week that a perceived Morrissey pessoa mentions being an octopus!
The coincidences continue to come, but still the masses fail to see the picture..... but then again, how can they see the picture when they haven't followed the whole story? Will there ever be a mass realisation? Probably not - The World WON'T listen.

  1. Great title, Rats! I'd say this one is quite a coincidence, and I love the video - what a bright little boy. Will the world ever listen?

  2. Wasn't it ALF who first mentioned the cephalopod?

    1. It was indeed AlfsButton who mentioned the octopus first, and it is of course Alf who is the "one of the other regulars" that Ratty has written about. Poor old Ratatouille, he isn't allowed to mention Alf, and it must be killing him! It's rather interesting to note that, since Rat has stopped mentioning AlfsButton, Alf's predictions & signs all seem to be coming true - whereas when Rat wrote about Alf, none of his predictions came true.

    2. Kerry. Great minds and all. I've just been thinking the exact same this about Alfie B's predictions!

      So if we where to hypothetically include you as one of the octomozzy tentacles I currently get 8 potential pessoas...

    3. Oh Kerry, you flatter me. I am certainly not a tentacle. Astraea and AlfsButton informed us that they make up one half of an octopus, so it would make sense to assume that Our Mozzer and Broken make up the other half - not that sense plays any part in anything around here.

  3. Mass recognition is so tawdry - numbers, chart positions, blah blah blah. The artist should raise himself above such demeaning parameters. It's very grammar school.

  4. Thanks for the Joni M nod, my dear rodent.

    Shades of Scarlett Conquering:

    Any man in the world holding out his arm
    Would soon be made to pay

    Kick the bride down the aisle:

    She just wants a slave
    to break his back in pursuit
    of a living wage
    so that she can laze and graze
    for the rest of her days

  7. Dear Rat, cheers for the chart expecially for Joni and Rita, but of course Morrissey's songs are the best ones! The octopuss story is very interesting, the octopuss is very clever and he got one head anx many legs or arms...that's very interesting! Good night Ratty dear and sleep well! Ciao.
