Perginya Sang Kurita!

Morning Peeps…

I was made to know via Hot FM this morning that Paul, 2, the oracle octopus who shot to fame in the World Cup this summer for his uncanny ability to predict the results of Germany's football matches, has died at his home in Oberhausen, Berlin, yesterday.

Paul made headlines across the globe after he correctly forecast how Germany would fare in seven matches, before his psychic powers were tested again for the final. Paul tipped Spain to beat the Netherlands in the final and its prediction duly came to pass: Spain won!

Following the World Cup, a Spanish zoo made a transfer bid for Paul but his German keepers refused to sell. Some Germans called for a public grilling of the oracle octopus, prompting Sea Life Centre in the western German city of Oberhausen to install extra security.

According to the Manager of Sea Life Centre, Paul will be kept in cold storage until the centre decides how to mark the mollusc's extraordinary life. They may decide to give Paul his own small burial plot within their grounds and erect a modest permanent shrine.

Manusia mati meninggalkan nama, harimau mati meninggalkan belang, Sotong Kurita mati meninggalkan World Cup! LoL

Till then, Happy Wednesday! *wink*
