@ Henry the Horse,


If that sort of thing is to your liking...

Whilst having a hunt around for things Squid to contribute to the page I came across a term that I thought somebody had made up for a joke,

"Japanese tentacle sex"

After a quick google I found a joke it was not....

You will need a broad mind if you go searching.

One site describing it's origins says of it the following,

"Japanese tentacle sex is the evolution of what you get when you have censors preventing actual porn production but leave some loop holes ..."

As they say "You Have Been Warned".

Cthulhu needs love too.

(Actually, considering the nature of the internet, particularly "rule 34", I shudder to think what I'd find on that with an unsafe google image search.)

Ahh Rule 34...

As Bruce sometimes links to XKCD, here's one they did on rule 34,

(And I'm hoping that "for the fun of it" the Moderator is not going to munch on it ;)

This isn't an "attack". Maybe the squid is curious, or playful, or friendly. There's no aggression. It doesn't try to bite the ROV, or damage it in any way.

Who interpreted this as an "attack"?

Am I the only one that initially thought that "Rule 34" had something to do with Stephen Wolfram?
