Psychic Octopus Predicts German Win in World Cup

This isn't from the Podunk Times or some non-consequential paper, but it's from the BBC, the most respected media source in Britain. Of course they're on top of all of our psychic animal needs, just like our good friend Paul the Octopus:

When consulted, Paul the octopus chose a mussel from a jar with the German flag on it ahead of one in a similar jar bearing the cross of St George.

The two-year-old cephalopod has a record of predicting past German results in this manner, his owners say.
Paul has so far correctly predicted all of Germany's results in South Africa.

His keepers say he correctly predicted 80% of Germany's results during the 2008 European Championship.
The octopus, who was born in the UK and was moved to the German aquarium, has become a national celebrity after correctly predicting Germany would beat Australia in their opening match, then lose to Serbia, and then beat Ghana.

His latest prediction was flashed all over the German media.

Well, I might as well put down fifty beans on this one.
