Stop the Squid!

What is even more tenctacle-y than an octopus, yet not as smart?

What animal does C'thulu most resemble?

For that matter, what does Bel'Shamharoth resemble?

That's right, the squid! And the squid is winning. Will you lay back and let the Sender of Eight, the Soul Eater, the Soul Render, Pharyngula take over?

I thought not. So, here's what you have to do: At this point, there's only one man who has a chance of taking down the squid: Phil Plait, the Bad Astronomer (the Rincewind of our story, if you will). Now, go out and cast your vote for Bad Astronomy. Vote every day from now until Friday. There are other blogs there that may tempt you, but that's just The Sender of Eight and his eight minions, so ignore them.

And if the Soul Eater decides to come after you in revenge, just remember: Running away may get you into more trouble, but you can run away from that as well.

Running away just guarantees you'll be eaten last. Trust me, you don't want that. Vote for the cephalopod overlords (ALL HAIL LORD MYERS) and you might get to be consumed first.

Hey, I never claimed running would give you eternal life, only that it would give you more life. Aditionally, my life timer is shaped like it was blown by a man who had the hiccups in a time machine. This means it's quite likely the Soul Render might think he's gotten me, when in actuality I've been teleported away to more prolonged torture, all under the justification that I'm supposed to somehow save the world some day.
