G'day all.

Quoting "Benjamin L.Russell" <DekuDekuplex at Yahoo.com>:

Ah, but "octopodes" is only the _nominative_ plural.  You really
should have written this:

     Or is that a logo of two octoposi, one with four arms, and the other
     with three?  Oh no, the poor octopodes!

Or, if the second sentence addresses the octopous, this would be correct:

     Oh no, the poor octopoi!

Hope this helps.  For your homework, what is the plural of "topos"?
