    Yeah, generally octopus sushi in Western countries is of the cooked variety. In Japan they have that AND the good raw stuff.

    It was hilarious making my mother try it when she visited me a couple of years back. I'd say it's an acquired taste.

    It's not that bad - I've tried a few. They are either cruchy or slimy - but taste wise you can barely taste most of them. It's just the initial disgust at the thought of eating that rather than the taste that stops you.

    Who the **** decided to call him Paul anyway? Diabolical.

    They should have called him something interesting, like Octavius VII (there need not have been Octavius I through VI).

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    It looks fun. Just watched an episode of Bizarre foods, and I can't wait to go and try this.

    A match-fixing scandal unlike anything the world has ever seen before. The players on the teams the octopus predicted would lose were paid huge sums of money to throw the games.

    Or a fluke.
