R.I.P. Paul, the World Cup Octopus

Paul, the psychic World Cup octopus, was found dead in his aquarium this morning. Although his keepers were said to be devastated, they were comforted by the fact that he lived a long and full life. Reading his obituary, I realized he probably accomplished more in his two-and-a-half years than I probably will in my entire life. According to his agent, there will be a documentary about his rise to fame and merchandise released in time for the holiday season. During the World Cup, Paul was also made an honorary citizen in Spain and an ambassador for Englands's 2018 World Cup bid.
