There’s a feel good story in the paper today. Giovanni DeGarimore owns a fish market. He also really likes octopuses (octopi, octopods, octopus?). When a local fisherman caught a 70 pound octopus, later named Fred, Giovanni purchased Fred for a couple hundred dollars. The octopus was then set free.
Giovanni apparently believes that octopi are “magnificent and arguably sentient”. This belief was formed after an encounter with one in Fiji. He’s ardent enough in his belief that he no longer sells them.
