Paul the great predicting octopus heads to that ocean in the sky
The world weeps for the timely death of Paul the Octopus, the great psychic of the deep. Not only did he inspire gamblers 'round the planet during the World Cup, in his death he's inspiring the punning mourners of Twitter and Facebook. In honor of that eight-legged psychic, we present our favorite tweets so far. (And if you need more Paul memories, go check out our slideshow.)
Anyway Paul always had four feet in the grave...
Isn't suspicious that no one said anything about Paul the octopus' cause of death? I smell foul play ( and a delicious tomato sauce)
It's not right to make jokes about Paul the Octopus so soon. I mean, the ink hasn't even dried yet.
We should all form a twitter honor guard and blow a vuvezela for Paul the psychic octopus.
Paul the psychic octopus has died. Bet he didn't see that coming.
One more 'I bet Paul the octopus didn't predict THAT' joke, and there are going to be a few more unpredicted deaths today. Stop it. Please.
i feel sorry for poor paul the octopus. it's put a real damp squid on my day.
RIP Paul the Psychic Octopus. Your tentacles reached out to touch millions worldwide. You'll be my favorite invertebrate forever.
