Paul the Octopus Dies: Are Your Kids Upset?Mara Siegler
The nation became familiar with Paul the Octopus during this past summer’s World Cup, when he managed to predict the outcome of all matches perfectly. He was found dead in his German aquarium from natural causes and has many, especially children mourning his loss.
Were your kids fans? Along with foretelling soccer wins, Paul’s primary job was to entertain kids and make them laugh.
In fact, he even put the clairvoyance gig down in order to focus more on children.
Such a caring eight-armed oracle.
