The caper began when someone used blue spray paint to draw a large squid or octopus on the northwest side of the Warner Park Community Recreation Center, 1425 Troy Drive.Squid or octopus? Why didn't they call a marine biologist to identify it? Anyway, a few days later the police were investigating the suspect of a hit-and-run crash in his house:
While making the call, one noticed a sketchbook on the living room table. It was open to a page that had a drawing on it, a drawing of a squid or octopus. The officer had seen this "discernible style" of sea creature before: on the photo circulated following the Warner Park graffiti case. . . During the booking process the officer noted [the suspect] had a large tattoo on his back: an octopus. On his forearm was another tattoo: a squid.Dun dun DUN.
Isn't it weird that they could distinguish between squid and octopus in the tattoos but not in the sketch or the graffiti? Perhaps the tattoo artist was more biologically talented than the graffiti artist.
I would like to make it clear that the Cephalopodiatrist and Squid A Day do not condone cephalopod-themed acts of vandalism, though we are totally in favor of cephalopod-themed murals. As for tattoos, well, that's between you and your mother.
