LAD Bible says People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is threatening to place an ancient curse on Gordon Ramsay if he doesn't remove octopus from his restaurant menus. The 'Octocurse' painfully turns any human who kills, cooks, or consumes octopuses into a cephalopod, which is a tentacley, marine mollusc.
PETA sent a letter to Gordon that reads, "Octopuses are hyper-intelligent animals capable of complex thought processes: they can navigate mazes, use tools, and learn how to do such things as unscrew lids simply by watching. They are masters of disguise, they decorate their homes as we do, and they have excellent memories. They are also extremely sensitive to pain. In fact, because octopuses' brains are distributed throughout their bodies, the terror and pain they experience at being sliced up alive or speared to death, common methods of killing these animals, is almost unimaginable. Fortunately, dodging the curse is simple: take octopuses off your menus for good and pledge never, ever to eat these clever cephalopods."

A bunch of us from work were at lunch the other day when we started talking about how people are buying Jeffrey Dahmer costumes for Halloween. I have no interest in watching the Netflix series and think it's disgusting. One guy said Halloween is the one night a year that it's okay to have an inappropriate costume and be politically incorrect. I disagree and think people should still have taste on Halloween. Who do you agree with? Me or my co-worker?
