And Now For Something Completely Different!

I figured that I should give you a feel-good story today to balance my other offerings. So, here it is:

"Soccer's octopus oracle Paul to retire"
Paul, the octopus who became a pop culture sensation by correctly predicting the outcome of as many World Cup matches as he has legs - all seven of Germany's games plus the Spain-Netherlands final - is going to retire.
You really couldn't ask for much more after a performance that would make Nostradamus blush. Well, I guess he could go into entertainment ... nah.
