Incomplete Experiment by gard Word Count: 131

A piece I am working on. Sometime ago a scientist was unhappily relating a story of how a group of biologists he knew needed to chop up an octopus for their experiments. However this octopus was very friendly and they had him long enough to form a bond. They would have to kill him by dropping him into nitrogen liquid. Not one of them wanted to kill the octopus so they decided to draw straws, the person who selected the shortest straw got the grim job....
