If France looks as bad in person as it does on the news this octupus is probably happy to get out of there. I would be.

Paul from Montpelier? I'll bet he can predict the answer to every Blog survey.

Montpellier! Mon dieu!

^8's Meanie le Bleu

'...the new octopus was born near the southern French city of Montpellier and will be presented to the public next week....'

So will the escargot?

pardonne-moi ;)

^8's Annie-une-deux-wear

*le smack aux le Meanie*


...will be presented to the public next week...
where townsfolk will pass through a receiving line featuring all eight tentacles.

"Aquarium spokeswoman Tanja Munzig says the new octopus, also to be called Paul, "

I feel bad for pets who get named after previous ones. "You'll never as good as Paul One"

I thought the walrus was Paul.

French octopus sushi. Huit rolls.

Of course, he will never pick the team that beat France. When Bulgaria went to the 3rd place game in 1990 ('94?), Hristo Stoichkov said that got as far as they did because God was Bulgarian and lost in the final because the referee was French.

He won't even try to pick a team. He'll go on strike.

Elon, believe it or not I'm husband #2 named Paul. Fortunately I never hear that.

Perhaps I should have looked at Dave's punchline first before 'thinking' of it myself.
*dusts off blog doghouse*
Hey, there's beer in here!

Don't mess up, or it's...

Paul deux wants the retirement age for octopii to be reduced to 1.5 years. Look what happened to Paul un when he was 2.

Coulda been 'enery the Aigth!

Whoa Pogo that was some excellent connecting

How come no one has been rude enough to suggest that Paul be given a DVD player to watch since he will be lonely
Which James Bond film would we like to recommend???

I thought Octopussy was a biography of that "lady" in California with all the kids.

Just for fun, dress him up as a French waiter and see if he ignores all his customers.
