Alien invasion of the jellyfish kind

When I first moved to the UK, I lived in Woking, home of H. G. Wells and the staging of his tripodic aliens. A fitting backdrop to my space job at the time, perhaps, but over the years it has also stoked the imagination of many a flying saucer and other-worldly musings.

Now what if those legs were actually invertebrate tentacles? Would that make the alien akin to our very own jellyfish? I wonder…
