Paul the Octopus, the German aquarium soothsayer, drew an immense amount of attention for ability to predict World Cup games.
He retired with a perfect record (and a slew of death threats!) to his name, but that doesn't mean the wildly popular field of octopi predictions would die out. The first copycat to pop up? A Minnesota octopus named Loki, who was asked to predict whether Brett Favre would play in 2010.
In wildly appropriate fashion, the octopus couldn't make up his mind.
