Signac is not the name his parents gave him. He won’t tell you that. Not that it is embarrassing or anything, but rather, he wants to go by Signac. He is a creative thinker. An outlier among outliers. If you meet him without introduction, you will probably find him to be obnoxious. If you get to know him, however, you will still find him to be obnoxious. Just less so. Like most people you know. I think it has to do with octopuses living a solitary lifestyle. They don’t interact much with the general public, so they are somewhat out of practice.
