Paul, the "psychic" octopus, has died.
 
Sad news for the prognostication community, one of the most successful predictors since Nostrodamus has died. Paul, the "psychic" octopus.

He shall be remembered warmly for his brilliant run during the 2010 South African World Cup, going 8-0 on predictions, which garnered him fame, a facebook page and a place in the annals of history.

His final prediction was reportedly: Octopi are delicious.

He was right.











Also, he was more important than Justin Bieber.

Oh no, not Paul! Now who's gonna guess soccer results and awe us at the same time?! We need another animal psychic that isn't a dog or a cat!

Who isn't nowadays? Oh wait, Mike Posner isn't, because everybody is cooler than him. Posner said it himself!

''You think you're cooler than me'', lol.

Anyway, Posner didn't say everyone is cooler than him, just that person.

"You" can be singular or plural. And since he's looking at the camera the whole damn time, you=the viewer. Therefore everybody's cooler than him!


Back on topic, they say they'll make a shrine for him. I just hope the shrine has the right procedures to avoid naughty tentacles :P

Poor Paul, what did the poor thing do to be thrown at a Red Wings game?

Give the octopus to Hugo Chavez, maybe he'll finally shut up like Rey Carlos' always wanted.

Sorry? I was distracted by how much the Red Wings suck.

kael03 10-26-2010 09:46 PM

Re: Paul, the "psychic" octopus, has died.
 
5-1 compared to 5-3 sucks? And how many titles do the Penguins have? Is it 11?

ACt 10-26-2010 10:09 PM

Re: Paul, the "psychic" octopus, has died.
 
Meh. All I know is that Toronto has 13. Your move.

inb4 1967.

kael03 10-26-2010 10:16 PM

Re: Paul, the "psychic" octopus, has died.
 
And when was the last time they won the title? Oh wait...that was 43 years ago.
