Paul the psychic octopus,currently residing at a German zoo, apparently has a thing for the footie. He’s correctly predicted wins and losses in the current soccer world cup. He is not consulting his magic eight-ball (although, he might be thrilled if someone were to offer one. Octopuses are notoriously smart and love new objects to check out.), but rather choosing mussels between two containers upon which the zoo staff has pasted the flags of teams playing in the cup. He’s drawn the ire of some who are blaming the cephlapod for the losses, but mind you it’s nary a stable person who gets mad at an octopus… Check out an article with more information including the fact Octopi have nine brains (they must be sitting in their tanks laughing at us).
