Soon, he'll be bigger than Jesus

Not one, but two, stories in the news today about Paul, the psychic octopus.

He has made his prediction for the winner of the next Russian election to be held in 2012. But, the decision is being kept secret until that time. I'm on pins and needles.

"Paul is now so popular in Spain that a northwestern Spanish town tried to borrow him. Officials in O Caraballino, population 14,000, declared that the octopus is their "honorary friend" and wanted Paul's presence to promote a seafood festival, the Faro de Vigo newspaper said.
A businessman from the town also offered 30,000 euros (C$40,740) to buy Paul, but the newspaper said Sea Life declined."

I want to be an honorary friend of Spain.
