Octopus: well its a long story basically whitey got into an argument with some orcas who are a little sensitive about their sacred mating grounds

Squid: Oh dear.

Octopus: no its cool only its hard to find cracks in icebergs to hide inside so I am in disguise instead


Octopus: check it I am one with the earth!

Squid: That is very clever of you

Octopus: yes even though I would much rather be fuchia

Octopus: fusiya

Octopus: fooschya

Octopus: pink

Octopus: but anyway they say the future is beige

Octopus: I sed my good man can you tell me the way to the trench and he said oh you mean the hunting ground

Octopus: and I sed yes I respect the ways of your people so I will call it that even though the captain just calls it down there

Octopus: and then he sed follow me and we went and claimed it for all marinity.
