More than one Octopus

An item in today’s paper made reference to ‘octopi’ being incorrect (presumably if you add an ‘e’ to the end you get an eight sided pie). It then went on to incorrectly suggest that octopusses was correct (presumably a short way of saying ‘eight cats’). When one octopus gets together with another octopus you of course have two octopodes.
