Everything's better in groups of eight! Take octagon-shaped cookies, for example: wouldn't you want eight of them? Or octogenarians! If you had eight of them, and you could convince them to lie down in the right shape, they would make an octagon! See how great eight is?
The greatness of eight-ness is not lost on the trusty Octopus. With eight tentacles, she's able to high-five you eight times as often! Or type love notes four times as fast! This snuggly cephalopod is super-duper-octopodal, a word which is octosyllabic! Woo hoo!
