    Another reason why it sucks to be a dolphin

    [URL="http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-205_162-57455945/octopus-hitches-ride-on-dolphins-genitals/?tag=re1.channel"]http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-205_162-57455945/octopus-hitches-ride-on-dolphins-genitals/?tag=re1.channel[/URL]


    [QUOTE](LiveScience) An octopus got the joyride of its life last week when it somehow became stuck on the belly of a bottlenose dolphin in the Ionian Sea. More specifically, the tentacled sea creature had a seat on the dolphin's genital slit.
    Researchers with the Ionian Dolphin Project, part of the Tethys Research Institute, were observing a foursome of dolphins near the island of Kalamos off the west coast of Greece. Suddenly, one of the dolphins leapt out of the water with something strange dangling from its stomach. It wasn't until the researchers examined their photos of the leap that they realized the unidentified object was an octopus.

    The tentacled hitchhiker was attached to the dolphin's genital slit. Photographer Joan Gonzalvo isn't sure what the octopus was up to, though he told New Scientist that perhaps the dolphin tried to eat the octopus and the animal lodged itself along the dolphin's genital slit to escape.

    The dolphin may have been leaping from the water to detach its uninvited guest, Gonzalvo, the project manager of the Ionian Dolphin Project, wrote on the organization's blog. After shaking the octopus loose, the dolphin continued to swim with no signs of discomfort, he added

    Yeah right. Don't you know that Dolphins enjoy sex, not just for reproduction? That sounds like the female dolphin got herself a sex toy for the ages... I mean, 8 giant ribbed shafts ... think about it!

    Twenty bucks to the first one to put a Syracuse shirt and a Stokes face on that octopus.

    Thought this was interesting:

    [quote]When reached for comment, the dolphin was quoted as saying it felt a ‘prickling, foreign-body sensation’.[/quote]

    Why the hate?

    Although I will say, looks like something FF2 would hit.

    At least that dolphin doesn't have to wear teal and orange and suffer the indignity of having J-Lo and Fergie as part owners of his franchise.

    I'd say he's doing quite well under the circumstances, all things considered.

    I'm not saying I haven't flogged the dolphin before, I'm just saying I know what's going on here.
