Paul the Octopus dies

3 posts in this topic

Halt the cremation!!!! Chinese medicine shops would pay big bucks for such a specimen.

I could look forward to eating him and perhaps gain some sports betting acumen.

Conspiracy!!

Paul the Octopus may have been dead up to 3 months ago,

Some loved him, some hated him. A single prediction by him was capable of dividing the world. No wonder, then, that many are mourning the death of Paul, the ‘psychic octopus’, who correctly predicted all the match results during the FIFA World Cup earlier this year. Since Paul passed away in his

tank in the Oberhausen Sea Life Centre in Germany early Tuesday morning, several theories are doing the rounds. Jiang Xiao, the director of a forthcoming thriller titled Who Killed Paul the Octopus? was quoted as saying, “The creature had really been dead for the last three months. Paul had died in July and been secretly replaced by his keepers.”

PaulThe news of his death was a hot topic of discussion online, too. “Jab tak World Cup football rahega, Paul the Octopus tera naam rahega!,” wrote a fan on Facebook. “How the hell am I supposed to bet on the winning teams now (sic),” wrote Bhaskar on the website. Others simply expressed their condolences. “May his soul rest in peace,” tweeted Kushajra Purohit, while Rohit Sharma said, “He was a legend. He will be missed during the next World Cup.”

While some mourned, others saw the lighter side, choosing to crack jokes instead. “We can finally fry him and have a good meal,” tweeted Shilpa Goel, a BPO employee. Other tweets included: “Paul the psychic octopus has died. Bet he didn’t see that coming,” and, “In your memory, I shall avoid sushi for at least a day.”
