    I can’t watch an arm wrestling match anymore after seeing one a long time ago on Wild World of Sports and one of the arms snapped with a microphone right at their elbows. I can still hear that sound.

    Were the octopuses already dead? If they were dead, were they just killed for this entertainment? If they weren’t dead, did they survive this entertainment of watching a creature suffering agony?

    Give me a positive twist to this and I’ll happily delete my comment…

    There is another good reason for having an over-developed right arm but I’m not going to mention it here. On the other hand, does anyone remember Charles Atlas and his Dynamic Tension adverts? (Twas a long time ago).

    “Rare bone disorder?” Does the treatment require lube cream, tissues, and a warm sock?

    One time I gave an octopus a toss, and it weighed 31 pounds.

    Take care and may God bless.

    I wonder if PETA has ever gone to a Red Wings hockey match.

    That’s like when Lawrence Taylor tackled Joe Thiesman in an NFL game and broke both bones in his lower leg. It was a compound fracture- you could see both bones coming out of his leg! My wife (an RN) had to turn away or get sick. They kept on showing it!

    That’s terrible about the octopi. It should be illegal. Respect all life.

    Red wing fans are assholes for doing that. That’s animal cruelty.

    Where does one get an octopus, especially a 30 pound one, in Detroit? Just curious.
