On the night before the full moon, I had a nightmare in which octopus-like alien parasites lodge themselves in people’s anuses or at least on their back ends.

I see someone — maybe on tv? — with predominantly greenish-brown but also part orange octopus… with tentacles sticking out of people’s butts. (No, phone, not buttons.) Tentacles stick out, but there’s no nudity, like the aliens can somehow do this despite clothing.
