Washington woman who posed with octopus on face hospitalized

β€œIt was a photo contest in the derby. So, crazy me, hindsight now and looking back, I probably made a big mistake,” Bisceglia said.

With her grin wide and arms outstretched, Bisceglia posed with the small octopus, which hooked its tentacles on her face.

Well, now I know not to put an octopus on my face.
