Mark Wahlberg Rescued His Son from an Octopus Attack (VIDEO)

'Late Show': Wahlberg Rescued Family from OctopusMark Wahlberg was ready to kick octopus ass to rescue his family. No, seriously. Apparently life is stranger than fiction.

'The Other Guys' actor and his wife took their 4-year-old son Mikey to an aquarium, he explained on the 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS).

On a private tour, "this woman pulls up this gigantic octopus. The thing latches onto my son's arm, it's got my wife, wrapped completely around the lady [handling it] -- and another guy who's standing there. They can't get this octopus off." Even the animal's handler was "freaking out," he said.

Wahlberg pulled the octopus off his son, whose arm had "all these suction marks, looked like about 30 little hickeys ... I was like, 'This is calamari. I will kill this thing' ... They said it's never been that aggressive."

Obviously he didn't kill it. But David Letterman had a valid follow-up question: "How big is the [lawsuit]?"

Again, always someone who sticks up for the animal!? People and kids especially are more important. Years ago, Fran Drescher made up a story on Leno, since then I always wonder if some of the celebrities embellish on a talk show . . .

I hate Zoos..I never took my kids to a zoo to watch the poor animals eating shit and suffering in cages. Let them go back to the wild!

What's the deal with TV Replay? It's always something about the Letterman show. I don't give a rat's behind what happens on the Letterman show. Hey, there are other TV shows, you know?

disp388684.... It wasn't such "special treatment." We have such things at the National Aquarium In Baltimore, which until recent years I was a volunteer diver. I got bit by one of our sharks. Fortunately, #1 she's a zebra shark with tiny teeth, and #2 I was wearing gloves. So, I didn't suffer any injury. She just smelled squid, which I had to feed the sting rays, and went for it. I was sloppy and allowed my hand to dangle behind me as I was pushing some of the rays away. Got hit by surprise. Put on quite a show trying to get her to let loose. Kept my hand, but the glove was destroyed. It's just something you have be aware of when dealing with wild animals. Even those held and trained in captivity can do things that are dangerous. It's an ever present risk when dealing with animals.
