Eight Legs to Hold You

The oddity came from beneath
I'd shop for a funeral wreath
This up-from-the-mucker
Will cup with its sucker
Thank god the thing doesn't have teeth.

It Came from Beneath the Sea (Robert Gordon; 1955) features stop-motion animation by Ray Harryhausen. David Cairns wrote our title, and informs us that the film's creature was given only six tentacles--instead of eight--to save labor when animating.
