Paul The OCTOPUS



Paul, I have heard you have retired. I have also heard about some horrible "sports fans" who have been making threats because of your predictions.

I really wanted to offer you refuge here, in our house. But, I am sooo ashamed to admit this... momma eats octopus. I have seen it on her sushi platters. You would not be safe around here.
[shudder] Even though: Jose Andres took octopus off the menu in light of your skills, momma would try to eat you. Sigh. But through due diligence, I have discovered that Uncle Jack will not eat any kind of fish, ever! So, White Dog Cottage would be a perfectly safe place for you to go to. And it is a RESCUE, you could get ... like asylum or something.
Obviously, momma will have to be kept away from your tank at all times, but that should be quite doable. I will work on auntie Robin and uncle Jack at my end, you work on your people at your end. Have your people call my people and let's you safely ensconced.

BTW, your oracle skills are impressive... Can you tell when I will get some more chewies next?

my mama actually prefers calimari (squid) to octopus. so maybe paul should try to come out here. I understand the Monterey Bay Aquarium has nice homes for sea animals. I bet they would love to have Paul join them.

Rocky, momma eats those too. She is all about the tentacles... Calamari, polpi... ick. I bet the Bay Aquarium would be great for Paul! Maybe he should then change his name so people would not pester him to pick any more winners...
