Hmmm.... You know, Paul IS a good name for an octopus.

OMG! He's been right for all 3 games?!

Why, that's incredible! It's like predicting 3 coin flips in a row!

The odds of that are incredible.

The ink will hardly be dry when his predictions are tested.

Get one wrong, Paul, and it's a calamari dinner on you.

No relation to Lev Yashin, naturally.

The fabulous creature's true potential is only now becoming evident to experts.

It turns out that he also has a keen sense of color and design, and has been enlisted as a fashion adviser to the House of Windsor.

It was none other than Paul who created that snappy oceanic outfit that HRH Q.E. II wore to Wimbledon yesterday.

Strangely, there has been no mention in the press of the sudden shortage of aquatic-themed shower curtains at Harrod's this week.

Red Wing fans want him for next season's playoffs.

Only if he predicts 16 wins for the Wings. Otherwise, we'll boil his ass and pitch him onto the ice...
