People (living under a rock), meet Paul.
(From Tampa Bay Online.)
The England-born octopus currently resides in an aquarium in Germany, and is the only cephalopod I know of that has received death threats. Some bored soul decided to let him try his luck at predicting winners of football matches involving Germany back in 2008 and realised with much delight that Paul is scarily accurate. To date, Paul has only wrongly predicted one wrong match out of twelve.
His last prediction was accurate -- Spain beat Germany, 1-0. This makes me a bit worried, as burly German men under the influence of German beer might feel inclined to make German sushi out of Paul. I mean, German sushi sounds terrible. I hope the caretakers of the aquarium take the necessary measures to ensure Paul's safety.
Oh, in case you were wondering -- the octopus is not related to Paul McCartney in any way.
