LIFE IS A JOURNEY, ARE YOU READY?

THE FATE OF PSYCHIC OCTOPUS PAUL AFTER THE WORLD CUP : HE WILL CONTINUE TO MAKE CHILDREN LAUGH

This is from the Examiner: Spain is not the only one to walk away with a World Cup trophy this year. In fact, Paul the “psychic octopus” was presented with his own replica in honor of his uncanny ability to consistently pick the right team to win throughout the games.

Paul, a resident of the Sea Life Aquarium in Obenhausen, Germany gained international fame by correctly predicting the outcome “ of as many World Cup matches as he has legs — all seven of Germany's games plus the Spain-Netherlands final,” by opening food containers bearing flags of competing teams. Whichever box he opened first was considered his pick to win.


Now that the games are over, however, the 2-1/2 year old will "step back from the official oracle business," according to aquarium spokeswoman Tanja Munzig. "He won't give any more oracle predictions — either in football, nor in politics, lifestyle or economy ," she said. Instead, Paul will resume his former occupation of simply “making children laugh."

Anyone interested in learning about Octopi  contact the Mystic Aquarium  55 Coogan Blvd, Mystic, CT 06355  860 572-5955.

To us, looks like Paul might end up in a rich person's house or office since they have included the aquarium's contact. He could well be auctioned off for good money since an octopus does not live that long.
