Are Octopi Aliens?

...so apparently 33 scientists signed off on a paper saying it's possible octopi, which are admittedly pretty dang weird (blue blood and all), arrived on Earth as frozen eggs on a comet.

They weren't being serious, just exploring the idea of panspermia (which I actually believe may have a grain of truth behind it), but it's an amusing conceit.

And here's the story seed: What if their relatives show up?

Oh, wait, that's the plot of Star Trek IV.
