    Probably took his own life to save himself from the stupidity.

    Apparently, a male octopus will only live a couple of months after mating. My guess is that Paul took advantage of the groupies his fame attracted this summer, and in doing so his fate was sealed.

    Animals... you can't live with them, you can't live without them...

    but you can eat them at least!

    He must have eaten a bad one. Didn't anybody tell him only to eat the ones that open?

    The Flying Spaghetti Monster will surely take care of one of His own.

    Well, if he was still smiling after a couple of months with the groupies, he was a fool. A fool octopus. That's one of the worst kind an octopus can be. A fool octopus, who's smiling in the water because he's had sex some months ago is the joke of the natural world.

    Weren't ze Germans none too happy with his predictions during the World Cup? I'm not saying they had anything to do with his death...but I'm not saying they didn't either.:D

    I remember hearing that Paul the Octopus was getting death threats from opposing team's fans. He probably couldn't cope with the pressure anymore and decided to end it all.

    R.I.P. Paul the Cephalopod, may you choose other victories in your dirt nap.
