RIP: Paul, The Psychic Octopus

by JAMES FURBUSH on OCTOBER 26, 2010 · COMMENT

Terrible news coming out of Germany this morning.

Death’s inescapable tentacles have curled themselves around Paul the octopus, the cephalopod sage who won worldwide fame over the summer by correctly predicting the results of a host of World Cup matches.

Paul the ‘psychic’ octopus predicted the winners of all Germany’s World Cup clashes, and then the victors in the final, by selecting one of two boxes, each loaded with a mussel food treat and marked on the outside with one of the teams.

Stefan Porwoll, the manager of the Oberhausen Sea Life Centre in Germany that the tentacled psychic called home, said Paul appeared to have died peacefully of natural causes during the night.

He was 2 1/2 years old. No word on if he predicted his own death.  But. There’s always a but.  His last prediction was that England would host the World Cup in 2018.  Paul’s definitely won his place in the animal hall of fame.
