    FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — Paul the Octopus, the tentacled tipster who fascinated football fans by correctly predicting results at this year’s World Cup, died Tuesday.
    Paul had reached the octopus old age of 2 1/2 years and died in his tank on Tuesday morning in an aquarium in the western German city of Oberhausen, spokeswoman Ariane Vieregge said.
    Paul seemed to be in good shape when he was checked late Monday, but he did not make it through the night. He died of natural causes, Vieregge added.

    Glad this was not about the real Paul of the Beatles.

    As a fan of the English and the Dutch, may he be eaten with some fava beans and a nice Chianti.

    If they had only asked Paul to predict this, they would have been ready Tuesday.
