The Angry Octopus Family

Mr Angry Octi is very proud of his ancestry.  He is the 8th spawn of the 8th spawn of the first Octopus to be born angry.  Unfortunately for him, female Octopi aren't often angry.  At least, not without extreme provocation.  So when he floated up to the beach one day and saw Ms Angry Octi, he couldn't believe his luck.

She was hot, and most importantly, angry.  He was mesmerised by Ms Angry Octi's elegantly truculent eyebrows.  After a few minutes of conversation he was ready to procreate, but of course he had to be a gentleman about it and at least walk her up and down the beach for a while.

Eventually though she consented and little Wrath and Wratherina were born.  

The twins are very playful, and in preparation for their lives as Angry Octopi, their parents have been putting them through very strenuous training...

Making them eat a special diet of angry fish...

And generally reminding them of their duty to grow angry eye-brows very soon so as not to disappoint the 3 generations of Angry Octopi that contributed to their existence.

On off days though Mrs Angry Octi likes to take Wratherina to check out the shops on the beach front.

And even though Wrath is still a little behind on his training, the whole family likes to take a break now and then to chill out on the shore.  Even though they're angry, there's a lotta love there in the Angry Octi Family.
