World Cup-Predicting "Paul the Octopus" Dies!


Honestly, I was in a little bit of a shock when I heard the news!!!

Paul the Octopus, the tentacled tipster who fascinated football fans by correctly predicting results at this year’s World Cup, died Tuesday (26th October 2010).

Paul had reached the octopus old age of 21/2 years and died in his tank on Tuesday morning in an aquarium in the western German city of Oberhausen, spokeswoman Ariane Vieregge said.

Paul seemed to be in good shape when he was checked late Monday, but he did not make it through the night. He died of natural causes, Vieregge added.

I wonder how are the people of Germany gonna commemorate Paul. Will there be an official burial ceremony? Hmm... No more predictions from this 'psychic' Octopus liao. :'(

More 'sotong' dishes got lah now! -_-"

Now you know what they say about people being extremely clever or geniuses, they die sooner than the rest of the common people! I guess it's the same case for animals too eh? O_o

R.I.P. Paul the Octopus.

People will always remember your legacy, and also this news tagline...
