The Most Amazing Paragraph in the World


In my research for Human Geography I have come across some amazing texts and sentences, but none as great as this…

“All this while O’Rourke was becoming perhaps the world’s greatest authority on the thought processes and the personality of the octopus. He knew how to outmaneuver them, to outflank them, and to outthink them. He knew full well, many years ago, what today’s octopus wrestlers are just beginning to learn–that it is impossible for a man with two arms to apply a full nelson on an octopus; he knew full well the futility of trying for a crotch hold on an opponent with eight crotches.”

Complements of Wikipedia’s http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Octopus_wrestling. Genius.
