Paul the psychic octopus-yes, I said ';psychic'-is retiring from making his soccer predictions now that the 2010 World Cup is over.

He would be given two boxes with competing teams flags with food in each and whichever one he ate from was claimed as his World Cup prediction. He made correct predictions for Germany and when he didn't eat from the Germany food box, Germany lost and was out of the World Cup. Throughout the entire World Cup, every ';prediction' he made was correct even the World Cup Final where he predicted Spain would win.

After predicting correctly Germany would lose, angry fans sent in recipes for octopus and demands for him to be cooked.

To protect the poor animal the Spanish Prime Minister ordered a team of bodyguards to protect him.

A team of body guards for an octopus? Wow. What do you think?
