1.) English teachers enforce the letter of the law when teaching gramatical rules, but authors, who make a living off the language, are known for breaking those rules for dramatic affect, which, when popularized in culture, becomes the new grammatical rule enforced by English teachers. 2.) A squid not only has the ability to project on its skin the colors of what lies beneath it, but it can match the texture as well. 3.) A startled octopus will make its skin turn vivid blue, yellow, and red, but will juxtapose them, to shock the would-be predator visually. Advertizers do that on cereal boxes to attract the eye of cusomers.
