In 1977 a new movie came out called "Tentacles".
We were on holidays at Long Jetty and after I took the kids to see it, the next day we went swimming in the local public baths.
I was playing with the kids in the water pretending to be a giant octopus and diving under and grabbing them, when Tim (my son) started screaming at the top of his voice - 'testicles!!! testicles!! testicles!!'
