Eli Roth

I Wear Pinky-Sized Condoms

After Octopus Mishap

Forget Magnums ... Eli Roth's strapping up with extra small rubbers these days ... thanks to a nasty bite from an OCTOPUS in Hawaii.

Eli tells TMZ, he recently overcame his fear of the ocean while on vacation in the Aloha State -- following a terrifying sea urchin attack in 2010 -- and decided to test the waters with a sea scooter expedition.

But curiosity got the best of him when he reached out to touch a baby octopus ... and the 8-legged bastard bit him on the pinky.

Eli -- the man behind the new Netflix series "Hemlock Grove" -- says his finger bled profusely for hours after the bite, and now he's gotta keep the wound covered with little pinky condoms until it heals.

And the best part, if he ever runs out ... he can always ask Justin Bieber for spares.

Ocean to Eli: we've warned you twice now. There won't be a next time.

Borrow from Bieber or Rob Kardashain(AKA Chaz Bono)..didn't he bitch on TV about the size of his? I can see it now ! The vile mother will now try and get condom sponsors for small weenies.

Just want to mention...sea urchins don't 'attack' people...people step on them and get hurt.

Sea urchin attack? He stepped on one. If a sea urchin was attacking you from a foot away you'd have to wait about an hour for it to get to you. Bout' the same as a snail attack.

I rather have the octopus bite any day. I stepped on a sea urchin nearly half a mile off shore and every step back was excruciating. Every steps digs those little barbs in farther and farther.

Here is a much more proper way to handle an octopus for those of you wanting to avoid a situation like this.
