Otto runs amok

Otto the octopus is bored, especially when his aquarium is closed for the winter so he enriches his life by shorting out the light above his tank and juggling hermit crabs.

What a star!

And it's about time they gave him better things to do.

What gets me is the zoo 'fixed' their[1] problem just by moving the light -but the real porblem was the risk to the other tank when the water pumps went off.

Surely these should have been moved to a separate circuit breaker.

[1] - Of course they didn't seem to look into giving Otto something to keep him amused. (Like come cultists perhaps)

I go with "entertain the cephalopod" as high up the list of important things that they should do. The meanies. Also, they should have worked out a way to rig up a target Otto could shoot with the water that would turn the light off for 15 minutes or so, so that when he wanted a bit of darkness the poor thing could have it. What do they think they are, the dominant species or something?

I bet he gets loads of people sending him toys. Heck, I want to play with him myself.

They could make him Chancellor. He's certainly adept at juggling. Perhaps he can do the same with the economy. I doubt that he could do worse than Darling:
