If there's one thing we humans got screwed over on, it's gotta be our lack of tentacles. Yes, yes, the whole opposable thumbs thing is keen, don't get me wrong... I just think when it comes down to it, we could all accomplish a hell of a lot more if we had tentacles. Just imagine the power you'd feel with suction cups on your squigly arm extension.
Well, fortunately the Gaia Online Store has decided to grant us the same powers that have been bestowed upon our octopus and squid brethren. Behold the almighty tentacle arm!
As you can see, it's a perfectly wearable tentacle arm, complete with all the translucent green suction cups one could ever desire. It's really well put together and it's comfortable for pretty much anybody to wear. Also, to fans of the old LucasArts Day of the Tentacle PC adventure game, this is obviously something you should all own. Granted, it's not purple, but a tentacle is a tentacle and it's hard to go wrong one no matter what the color.
But here's something the folks from Gaia Online haven't told you...
The Tentacle Arm makes for the greatest Christmas stocking EVER! Yes indeed, just flip it upside-down and stick it to a window with those powerful suction cups, and you've got yourself the longest, most badass looking Christmas stocking in the history of the world. Santa's jingle balls will cower in fear when he sees this green beast hanging before him, and he'll have no choice but to leave you a ton of cool gifts or he too shall face the wrath of the mighty tentacle arm.
So that's just one additional use I've found for the tentacle arm so far, but we're holding a new contest on the forum to see who can come up with additional uses for it! The winning entry will receive a brand new tentacle arm of their very own. Just imagine the years of suction-cuppy joy you'll have with your beloved tentacle arm. So check out the forum thread for the contest rules (you MUST post your entries in that thread) and let's see what uses you can come up with for this super cephalopod souvenir. And no, "tentacle rape tool" is not a valid entry. Contest ends 4/1/08. Good luck!

Finally, a chance to have a tentacle of my own. And that stocking idea works (it also appears to be twice the size of a normal stocking, so that's more room for loot, as Calvin would say). Now I need to finally get around to playing Day of the Tentacle when I get this, to feel more at home.
Figures I can't think of anything witty to use that tentacle as (sure, it'll come to me after the contest is over, but that's not exactly helpful, now is it?), but let's see what others have to say over on the forum.

With that tentacle, I'd finally be able to get that padlock key out from under the fridge!
VICTORY SHALL YET BE MINE!

i know of the Gaia place, when i joined, it was a discussion board, and now it's a major place to talk to friends, think of it as an anime themed Facebook, where you can buy things, and even thingsfor your internet character/avitar. That's right, you can spend actual money to pimp up your little cartoon computer graphic
and in a pinch, the tenticle would make a wonderful device to reenact cheesey scenes with, like the Kracken from the prates of the caribean movie

Time to book a flight to Japan -grins-

There's only one use for a tentacle arm like that...
CRAZY TENTACLE DUELING!

i was ready to leave some smarmy remark about the latest enty from -RoG-....but then i re-read it...TENTICLE...dang.

OUtcome (Guest) on 03/16/2008 7:30 pm
But -Rog- day of the tentacle also features the non-mutated green tentacle which is a dead ringer for the tentacle and they are also both featured in maniac mansion for which DOTT serves as a sequal for.
BiggerJ (Guest) on 03/16/2008 8:16 pm
To be more specific, the tentacle arm resembles Green Tentacle as he appeared in the original Maniac Mansion, rather than the stubby, cartoony version seen in Day of the Tentacle.
Jigby Huggletinks on 03/16/2008 9:59 pm
That would make such a sweet hat. It's no pickle, but... sweet.
ColdFusion (Guest) on 03/16/2008 10:30 pm
Psh, turn that thing up to eleventacle.
Copper on 03/16/2008 10:53 pm
Now if we could just petition Gaia for a pickle hat, that would be awesome. (*knows what she's doing for the next applicable contest*) I would so get one for my avvie.
And yes, DoTT rocked, as did Maniac Mansion.

Greatest birthday present ever...
incognit000 on 03/17/2008 6:45 am
Oh my god, my girlfriend will love it!
...if I had one.
...and she was into that kinda thing.
peirs (Guest) on 03/17/2008 3:37 pm
you could fill it with rocks then spin around reallllllllly fast and let go and see what brakes :)
lospepes (Guest) on 03/17/2008 3:44 pm
It seems to me that you could use the suction cups to affix that there tentacle to the inside of your thigh, and use if for a holster for your three-foot schlong...
Ronin S on 03/17/2008 4:14 pm
Do you have an avatar at Gaia?
I didn't like their ORLY hats, so I made my own. I'm planning to get some t-shirts before the end of the month since they're on sale.
Dungeonbrownies on 03/17/2008 6:16 pm
ah, gaia online, they have an ok mmorpg and a pretty fun anim-ish v-chat. I used it to mess with people mostly. With the power of imagination, im sure ill get the prize. =]
-RoG- on 03/17/2008 6:37 pm
Honestly, I don't know anything about the Gaia online game (haven't played it or anything) so I can't comment on it as I'm not really into mmorpgs (don't have that much time to commit to a game), I just found out about the tentacle arm and loved it. Oh and Jigby, I'm sad to report that it doesn't fit on your head as a hat. Well, at least not on my noggin.
Anywho, keep sending those entries in on the forums for our tentacle arm contest!
Copper on 03/17/2008 10:52 pm
I suppose Gaia is technically a MMORPG, but it's more of a...chat site than an actual game. You can play games, buy stuff, go to town and talk with people, or do so on the forums, but it's not like, say, Everquest where you have to go out and kill monsters, save the world, etc etc. You can put as much time into it as you wanna invest, really.
Captain PirateFace on 03/18/2008 3:36 am
I would use it to pimp slap my wife with when she gets out of line....
and then pull it over my head for the severe Italian beating I would get soon after from her.
TWO USES IN ONE!
Su (Guest) on 03/18/2008 1:30 pm
The Gaia staff has been working on a battle system for the past three years in an attempt to establish the site as an actual MMORPG.
Don't ask me how I know these things...
AsthmaticHamster (Guest) on 03/18/2008 10:08 pm
This tentacle lacks purple indeed...
Grossenschwamm on 03/19/2008 5:49 pm
Dear god...I saw the contest link to win my very own tentacle arm, and read it as testicle.
But still...to have my own testicle arm would be pretty sweet.
Count Mek on 03/19/2008 8:49 pm
That animated GIF is the bset thing I have ever laid eyes on.
saturnknight on 03/22/2008 1:19 pm
Gaia online isn't an mmorpg, it's an online discussion forum where you create a character and basically talk to friends and things online, it's like this discussion thing but with a small character you can edit to look any way you want
Simon (Guest) on 03/27/2008 6:38 am
It's pretty rad, but this guy's subdermal implants are even better.

Duh, make tentacle hoods for your brainwashed child servants. By just cutting some eyeholes somewhere on it your brainwashed child servants can be more tentacly and by association with the tentaclyness, more awesome and/or fearsome.
yelinna (Guest) on 03/31/2008 11:27 pm
Hey... What happened with the rest of the octopus, squid... the owner of that tentacle????
Ah, Rog! You make so funny faces that I can't stop laughing!!
Vila on 04/04/2008 4:32 pm
Could be useful (with a little spray paint) if you want to be an Innsmouth folk for Halloween...
