Bent octagon



A convex octagon completely contains all 28 of its diagonals. But if you move the vertices around you can make portions of some, but not all, of them pass through its exterior. What is the largest number of such diagonals? Equivalently, how many diagonals of an octagon must remain totally in its interior?
