Tree Octopus? Apparently Not!

So someone at work today claimed to have seen a monkey in a tree whilst out on thier lunch – pretty unlikely in -3°C Yorkshire especially since monkeys don’t really exist (like Seahorses and Unicorns). Anyway, that lead onto a bet: If I couldn’t find a photo of an octopus in a tree (and thereby prove their existence (because the internet never lies)) I would be relieved of tea making duties…

… a quick google search later lead me to actual tree octupus’ (octopi???) and I’d won the bet…

…apparently not. According to Wikipedia this has been a long-running internet hoax, although I didn’t find out till just now – oops!

Pun Of The Day: Cephaphony!
