    "The octopus said to have psychic powers after predicting all of Germany's six World Cup games correctly, has had his say regarding the final in Johannesburg on Sunday – and it is good news for Spain."

    Yup, psychic octopus has predicted all World Cup game outcomes this year correctly, and the final outcome of Spain winning.

    Move over Sylvia Browne...here comes a legit psychic, the German (I think) octopus.

    Haha, actually it's pretty cool. What do ya'll think of the critter?

    Discuss.

    I don't know about psychic... maybe the octopus is just a very good guesser of World Cup results tongue but still very neat!

      With that many hands he wouldn't have to be psychic - he could just cheat!

    I was wondering if this psychic octopus has a name, like Hans or Werner. Do they just call it Psychic Octopus?

    Paul should run for office.
    Sylvia Brown should take notes.
