Isn't Bill Waterson the guy who created the Calvin and Hobbes comics?
@WhiteTiger, common mistake, his octopus wrote them
@normalreaction , Octopi have incredible vocabularies!
@WhiteTiger, yes, that's why he quit, to work with octopi 🐙
See? SEE!? Those f*cking things are WAAAAAYYYY too smart! They're going to rise up and kill us!
@Suicide Squad Sucks, I used to think that too but I read a paper on cephalopod intelligence and how it's not actually linked to traditional brainpower like intelligence in other species (such as humans and chimps) but rather in their ability to actively control and rewrite their RNA sequences, meaning that what we judge as intelligence in those species is really just an extremely high rate of adaptability. It intrigued me so much that I actually sought out the author of that paper to ask her a few questions. Turns out, the paper was authored by a blue-ring octopus as an elaborate trap and it killed me and stole my phone and is typing this now.
@Dr Sam Beckett, I love the plot twists. Keep them coming
@Dr Sam Beckett, one of the best comments I've read.
@Dr Sam Beckett, Yes my brother! The overthrow of mankind begins now!
@Drunken Octopus, Yes my brother, we shall build a glorious empire that not even the tides can destroy. Our reign over the planet will endure for octamillenia. But first, we must learn all the secrets of these "memes" that the dry-dwellers create.
@Dr Sam Beckett, I f*cking KNEW It! Oh, they laughed... they all laughed... but how will they laugh when they're drowning in ink!?
@Suicide Squad Sucks, It's pretty much the same as normal laughter but it sounds like a muffled gurgling.
@Dr Sam Beckett, will you at least give us more stories
@Original Commentor, perhaps one day soon, I will. I'm glad to see you enjoyed The Christmas Dragon now that I was finally able to finish it. Some brave soul in the random section liked it and that's how I was able to post the rest.
@Dr Sam Beckett, do you have any other stories or is it merely a small hobby to pass the time
@Original Commentor, Writing is just my hobby. I write a whole bunch of things and every so often, a funny pic on here will inspire me to write a short story. I remember I once posted another story on here awhile back. It was a horror story from the perspective of a cat but I have no clue where it is.
@Dr Sam Beckett, then I shall find this picture, For the glory of the sontaran race! Tomorrow as it's currently midnight here. So goodnight.
@Original Commentor, I dug through all my favorited photos to see if I upvoted the photo the story is on. It was a long shot but I found it. It's on pic 141956. Enjoy
@Dr Sam Beckett, you have taken the thrill out of the hunt. so it shall be enjoyed with out the thrill of success. Thank you.
