A Dad Spends Too Much Time With Blender 3D

Family catch and eat octopus with six tentacles during Greek vacation… then find out it was only the second specimen of a rare ‘hexapus’ ever found
Jul 31st, 2013 by Dennis G. Jerz

My former student Matt Hoy sent me this sad story:

Screen Shot 2013-07-31 at 10.25.58 AMAfter catching an octopus, holidaymaker Labros Hydras followed local tradition by killing it and taking it to a taverna to be served for his supper.

That is when he discovered this was no ordinary specimen – it was a ‘hexapus’ with only six legs instead of the usual eight. — Mail Online.

Henry the Hexapus met with a kinder fate.

I don’t remember where it came from, but here is a picture of a Rainbow Hector with a cat.

I found the file, dated July 22, 2007, on my hard drive.

My brother-in-law sent me a link to this hectopus for sale. At this price, I am not feeling the need to add to the collection, but this fellow sure is a cute one.

Hector Teaches Active and Passive Verbs
Oct 7th, 2011 by Dennis G. Jerz

Dr. Jerz tossed this fine fellow at me during class today to illustrate the difference between active and passive voice. I’m pretty sure he’s a hexapus although I originally wrote hectapus. “Dr. Jerz threw the hexapus at Katy” versus “The hexapus was thrown at Katy.” I shouldn’t EVER forget active and passive voice again although I’m sure I will eventually.

Good thing his throw was a little short because I would not have caught the poor thing! Anyways, the hexapus made a great desk buddy during the lecture, and I wanted to share his adorableness with the rest of my class. —Katelyn Snyder

My 9yo made this hectopus army. “You might ask what they are fighting. The evil XYZ hectopodes.”

My brother-in-law Robert writes, “We’re testing out Rosemary’s new camera and thought you might like this. We’re thinking about having it printed on a t-shirt.”
