i've had twitchy octopus in the form of sashimi, but it was just one of those things where it was still moving shortly after being killed. great stuff. you can't beat tako that fresh.
i've heard you need to put some oil on the live ones to keep the leg suckers from sticking in your mouth.
btw, i'm not sure if i'd want to be a cousin of dawgluver around the holidays...
