octopus Carson Daly: Paul the Octopus Dies

Oh noooooes! Paul the Octopus, who rose to fame by accurately predicting the winners of several World Cup games, has died!

We told you about the octopus oracale back in July, when he correctly chose Spain to win the 2010 World Cup. 

Paul was housed at the Sea Life Aquarium in Oberhausen, Germany, where handlers found him dead on Tuesday morning.  One of the aquarium managers explained:

He appears to have passed away peacefully during the night, of natural causes, and we are consoled by the knowledge that he enjoyed a good life here.

News of Paul’s death spread like wildfire on Twitter. One of our favorite tweets?

Touché, touché…so what’s next? A meerkat that can predict the outcome of the Super Bowl?
