The Late Paul the Octopus
The revelation of this year's World Cup in South Africa, Paul the Octopus has died at the grand old age of two. He came to stardom when he predicted all the results for this year's World Cup correctly.
"The Tentacled One" as he was later known was able to pick out winners and results that made bookmakers feeling a bit uneasy. It was reported that some bookmakers had even arranged some meetings to discuss about Paul.
There were even supposedly assassination attempts on Paul's life when it became apparent to bookmakers that he is an annoyance and threat to their business.
