Creepy

8 Parms a week/to hold you said...

Ha. I never think of an octopus when hearing that alternative title to "HELP!" "8 arms to hold you," in turn, makes me think of "8 Days a Week," which is a title/expression supposedly said in casual conversation by Ringo, who wrote "Octopus's Garden." Which is all pretty random but it ties up nicely so I'm going with it.

Creepy? Maybe, but kinda cool at the same time. Creepicool, perhaps?

You know, I didn't even think about "Octopus's Garden" until afterwards. I like the added "Eight Days A Week"/Ringo connection, by the way.

I thought it was sort of odd that the Fair folks christened the Pavilion "Whale Tales" and chose to have a giant octopus center stage as opposed to something like a walk-through cetacean. Oh well, I guess it was just a fluke.

There I was, innocently reading along, and I get zapped by a horrible (which is to say, wonderful) pun.
