The main characters of these wonderful adventures are Victoria and her per octopus, Otto. "Everyone can relate to having a pet," Kesinger says. "What I wanted to do with Otto and Victoria is to ask the question 'What if your pet was an octopus?' As soon as you do that you start to raise humorous scenarios like how hard would it be to housebreak an octopus when they're inking everywhere."

From a relaxing tea party on a boat to lighting the candles for the evening, Victoria does everything with her domesticated cephalopod. Scroll down to enjoy Brian's stories and don't forget to vote for your favorite ones!

It'd be easier just to let him stain the rest black and call it a day.
