@Karen while you were in YouTube looking at the "Octopus's Garden" video, did you chance to look at the "Maxwell's Siver hammer" video?   Pretty bloodthirsty stuff.....

David, it may indeed have been inspired by your comment.  Who knows what caused it to surface from my subconcious.  Glad you liked it!

Salbayang, I had that song circling around in my mind today also, and I've also had Eight Days a Week in my mind though under the the cartoon-related title, Eight Legs a Week. :)

kfield, sounds like a nice place to vacation.  I like the video too--well done and whimsical, just like the song. Per the wikipedia, the recording took 32 takes!

Another Ringo favorite:

@seaEE Thanks for sharing this delightful video and prose! My experience with being in an octupus' garden was while snorkeling off the coast of Hondurus, and it lives up to every claim in the song.
