one of the first things i thought of when i saw the picture was, wow tako poke! just have to substitute squid for octopus

Tako Poke
(From "The Choy of Cooking -- Sam Choy's Island Cuisine,"
Mutual Publishing, 1996, $35)

1 pound tako (octopus)
1 ripe medium-size tomato, chopped
1 cup chopped cucumber
1/2 cup chopped onion
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 Hawaiian red chile pepper, seeded and minced (or 1/2 teaspoon red chile pepper flakes)

To clean fresh octopus, turn head inside out and remove ink sac, innards and mouthparts; rinse. To tenderize fresh octopus, freeze, pound or lomi (massage).
To cook octopus, in a medium pot, bring enough water to cover octopus to a boil. Lower octopus into boiling water, return water to a rolling boil, then cook 2 or 3 minutes. Drain, plunge into cold water and slice into thin slices. In a bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well. Makes 8 servings, each 1/2 cup.

If you troll the owl - which has this funny habbit of flying - u might catch an eagle.

Has anyone eaten as eagle ?

I saw it on TV today. It weighs 150kg (330lbs) and is said to be about half grown. You should have seen the size of the claws and beaks (it had 2) on the thing Shocked

"Row row row your boat
gently down the stream,
Merrily merrily merrily merrily,
Life and spiders' dreams"

I have no idea what that means....
