Tentacle Tuesday Masters: The Far Side of Gary Larson, Pt. 2

« Octopuses have a lot in common with other species that are known to thrive in cities—not only can they use human-made structures for shelter, but they’re highly adaptable and good at problem solving. So maybe we’re justified in adding to our list of neighbours, next to the raccoon at the sliding glass patio door and the coyote in the halo of the street lamp, the octopus casting its appraising eye from under the sunken hull of a rowboat. » |source|

Octopuses in a mundane, urban setting? Address yourself to Gary Larson!

As promised a couple of weeks ago, we’re back with another Larson-copia of tentacles! Pt. 1 can be found here. Again, thanks to co-admin RG for all the scanning and colouring work.

If you think we’re somewhat stretching the definition of “tentacle”, I think the husband’s, err, feet definitely qualify.




Incidentally, one the world’s largest sea creatures is the lion’s mane jellyfish, whose tentacles are the longest of them all (they can attain lengths up to 37 metres or 120 feet).



Letting us know what we’re in for straight away, even the cover of the fourth Far Side collection features a tentacle.

      Glad you agree! At some point, I’m going to do a Tentacle Tuesday about worms that look like tentacles – the Swamp Thing is tackling worms, if memory serves. I’ve been accumulating material for it 🙂

        As I have not yet checked all the tentacles on Tuesday, a question is already burning my lips … And Doc Ock?

        Oh, he’s there all right. But just once… and by his creator. 😉
