Ursula? 
I've already seen an outfit with an octopus on top of the skirt as the bustle cover. This however inspires future possibilities.

You didn't happen to snag a picture of that outfit, did you?

Looks like someone on the Miskatonic River didn't do the ritual correctly...

Is there room for mathematical humour?  If so I had written a mathematical joke as a reply in another thread:

WARNING: NOT FOR PEOPLE WHO DON'T LIKE MATH
Go to PE class if you don't want to see the blackboard.

May we go to the library, instead?

That all looked very logical, but of course I understood none of it, so I'll leave it to you math-heads to hash that one out. But, I am curious, so keep at it; I'd like to know how all this P = fht'agn stuff works out... I'll try to translate it all later, using phraseology I can grasp (the time-honored "Fire...bad! Friend...good!" method).

According to ancient texts, when all the celestial bodies are in the right place over the atmosphere, the planetary atmosphere becomes receptive[1].  While the phenomenon was recounted in finer detail by Prinn in the 16th C. [2], it wasn't until the 19th. C that a practical theorem was developed for the receptivity of the atmosphere to interplanetary dark matter.
Hence the equation of P is given by Eibon 3 as:

P =  (mC)0[(Rw)F]-1dF

and is known as the Cthulhu Integral, to be calculated separately for every single corner of the Seven-Pointed Star, and where

P =  Ph'nglui
m = mglw'nafh
C =  Cthulhu Non-Euclidean Coefficient
R =  R'lyeh
w = wgah'nagl
F =  Fht'agn

The horrifying solution to the Cthulhu Integral, without the mathematics of course, is redacted by Alhazred, who stresses its main use was to calculate the geographic position for the City of R'lyeh 1.

Prinn could not undersand Alhazred's explanation, since at the time, available mathematics theory on non-Euclidean geometry was limited, and would remain unavailable throughout most of the 16th and 17th centuries, and most of the 18th. century.  However, by 1875, Eibon understood it was meant to locate R'lyeh in 7-dimensional space over the non-Euclidean coordinate domain from zero over to Infinity for each of the 7 blood curdling dimensions 2.

Caution must be given to the reader, who must not try to plot this function, as this unholy geometry is well beyond the capacity of the human brain to understand, and is related to dimensions hitherto inexperienced by human evolution. It must be stressed that attempting to understand it will most likely drive the reader insane3.

P.S. loved Farscape back in the day.

Though she was strange, I kinda "had the hots" for that grey girl back then.  ;D

I do need to correct that equation, though.  I realized it should read

P =  (mC2)0[(Rw)F]-1dF

The solution should be more tractable if not downright obvious now.
