I challenge you to describe any plausible scenario where you would have spare octopuses.

Nearly every time I have one or more octopuses, I have one or more spare octopuses.

This is the inherent nature of me having any octopuses, since normally I have no use for them.

Who's your octopus guy?

I live in the geographical centre of the North American continent. I don't have an octopus guy, I have to stumble upon them at random.

What, like lying around in the streets of Winnipeg?

Do you mean the Yellowknife that is 2,731.3 km from where I live?

Yes, after being thrown at condominiums.

People need to stop wasting good octopi.

Wait... we ARE talking about an octopus, right? They don`t hibernate - but rather prevent hibernation....

Nobody got the joke? Octopus lie on the bottom of Great Slave Lake near Yellowknife all year around, "hibernating."
