POULPE

A cuttle-fish (or small octupus) which is often the victim of disappointed harpoon fishermen. As the other fish dart away so quickly the divins heroes make for this somewhat trustful and inquisitive little sea animal. The eight-armed (tentacles) little sea-creature is then dragged from the water amidst blood-curdling yells of triumph and slowly tortured to death. The dead cuttle-fish are then consigned once more to the waves because they are not to every's one palate and are rather difficult to prepare as a meal. These torturers qhould be forced to eat their victim immediately after being killed.
