Paul, the octopus who stunned the world by correctly picking all his games in the 2010 World Cup, has died. It was not unexpected since at 2 1/2 he was up there in octopus years, but it is still sad.

Paul is in cold storage while his remains await suitable disposition — a modest but permanent shrine may be erected, say German zookeepers. While that is all nice and dandy we all know what is really going to happen: a thorough autopsy to figure out the source of his psychic powers, followed by a supervillain plot to steal his body and use it to clone an army of super soccer pickers.

  1. “a thorough autopsy to figure out the source of his psychic powers, followed by a supervillain plot to steal his body and use it to clone an army of super soccer pickers.”

    I’m pretty sure this is how most apocalyptic Lovecraftian scenarios get started.

  2. Think of all the takoyaki that could be made from Paul… And, maybe who ever eats them will gain psychic powers.
