    Sure... a Starfish is an echinoderm (Gr. "spiny skin"). All
    echinoderms have a bilaterally symmetric larval stage which has
    4 legs. Therefore a Starfish is not an exception to the
    rule that "4 is the minimum number of legs". This (obvious)
    axiomatic geometry observation has apparently even obtained
    to the empyrean level of being "pedantproof".
