What is an octopus?

Joke image

An eight-legged cat!

In English, another word for cat is 'pussy cat'. You can shorten it to 'puss', which is the sound at the end of the word 'octopus'. In the picture you can see a creature that is half octopus, and half pussy cat!

what do you mean?

Hi QueenMysticJewel,

 

In English, you can sometimes call a cat a puss cat or puss for short.

 

The joke is imagining that an 'octopus' is an eight (octo) -legged cat (puss)!
