If you don’t already track the every move of Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus through his Twitter account, allow me to fill you in on something awesome that one of our Blink-loving staff members spotted last week:

Ask and ye shall receive!

Since Mark made the compassionate choice to use a plastic prop rather than a real octopus for his photo shoot, peta2 is giving him a Compassionate Citizen Award. He’ll also receive a framed certificate and a card signed by peta2 staffers.

Octopi are intelligent, sensitive animals who have been observed communicating with each other. They’re able to grasp objects with their tentacles just like we can with our hands, and some have even been taught to unscrew jar lids in order to retrieve food inside.

Here’s to Mark for showing that “all the small things” deserve compassion and respect!
