WCW - Tentacular!

I'm trying to think how this fits into the letter W, and it just doesn't. But here it is anyway. The other day we were at the grocery store, and I noticed this on the shelf:
Now trying to tell four boys they won't like octopus is like trying to convince a dog to ignore a T-bone. It ain't happening. So we put the octopus in the cart, with the understanding that I would be taking photographs of their octopus-eating experience. This is going to make a fun scrapbook page.
So first, the five year old tried it:
And his reaction:

Get it out! Get it out! Then the eight year old tried it.

He likes it! At least one of them will eat it. And then, the two year old had to have a sample, because he loves seafood.
See? Food!

So, did you play?


  1. OMG.

    First of all I have a new computer and can actually make it here now!!!! wooohooooo!

    Second...that's FREAKIN' GROSS!!!! I give your kids a million Bonus Points for being willing to stick something so nasty in their mouths...willingly.

  2. I can't believe they would be willing to try something like that!

    I mean, I am a grownup...I'll try anything once.

    I played (but you already know that). ;-)

  3. My kids would totally eat that, too.

    And your W can be Whoa! My kids eat tentacles.

    I played.

  4. LOL - You gotta fry it and offer it with sauce to make it taste good. Yum. Calamari :)

  5. Yuck and Double Yuck...fried calamari is partially acceptable...but octopus in a

    The Egel Nest

  6. The good thing about octopus is that there is a leg for everyone.

  7. Bwahahaha! That last picture is a classic! I actually ate smoke octopus one time (yes, because it was in the store - I was probably about the age of your oldest). Actually - it wasn't bad. Not something I would have all the time but nothing I felt the need to spit out either.

  8. I am very impressed!

    especially that you even found something like that.

    Now, I like octopus - deep fat fried as calamari. I never knew you could buy it at the grocery store.

  9. Holy crap, I'm cracking up at the look on the 2 yr olds face!!!!!!
