Paul The Psychic Octopus Is Dead

By Ollie Irish

Paul is an ex-octopus. RIP football’s greatest psychic mollusc, nay, football’s only psychic mollusc.

Yes, Il Pulpo Paul, who correctly ‘predicted’ (rolls eyes) a stack of World Cup results this summer, has passed away (according to a spokesperson at his aquarium) – insert your lame “He didn’t see that coming…” gags here.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad must be delighted with this news.

So that’s the hot football story of the day. Check. You can stick your Ballon d’Or shortlist up your arse, frankly.

    ……….Guy walks into a bar with an octopus. He sits the octopus down on a stool and tells everyone in the bar that this is a very talented octopus. He can play any instrument in the world. He will bet £50 on it. A guy walks up with a guitar and sits it beside the octopus. The octopus starts playing better than Jimi Hendrix. So the man pays his £50. Another guy walks up with a trumpet. The octopus plays the trumpet better than Dizzy Gillespie. So the man pays his £50. A third guy walks up with bagpipes. He sits them down and the octopus fumbles with it for a minute and sets it down with a confused look. “Ha!” the man says, “Can’t you play it?” The octopus looks up at the man and says, “Play it? I’m going to f*** it as soon as I get those pajamas off.”

    It’s sad when a beautiful creature dies. I guess he didn’t see that coming.

    Paul is the legend. Of course he couldn’t predict results, but still it is a good story. This proves that no matter how smart you are and how much do you know stuff about football, at the end – it’s mostly luck in question.
