An octopus called Simon had always felt inferior to his older brother Paul who had made a name for himself as a surprisingly accurate predictor of the World Cup 2010.

And of course also that he didn’t wear sleeves but only a simple yet elegant bowtie. Simon knew he had to find his own calling, and he thought maybe rock climbing could be it.
