David Dimbleby got his tattoo wrong as well

Boing Boing reports that:
'Famous, respected UK journalist and TV presenter David Dimbleby, 75, recently got his first ink: of a six-legged scorpion. Unfortunately, scorpions are arachnids, with eight legs. The scramble is on to identify a face-saving species that the tattoo could represent: the best bet so far is the Whip Scorpion, which has six good legs and two crappy, vestigial ones used as feelers; and various scorpion-esque arthropods.'
Famous - yes, respected - not necessarily.
