Jules the Oc­to­pus pre­dicts ‘Best Ac­tress’ Port­man

Bray People - - NEWS -

FOL­LOW­ING THE sad loss of his world fa­mous cousin Psy­chic Paul, Jules the Oc­to­pus from the Na­tional Sea Life cen­tre in Bray has taken over the fam­ily tra­di­tion and used his tele­pathic ten­ta­cles to pre­dict the 2011 Os­car win­ners.

The han­dlers of the psy­chic oc­to­pus pre­sented Jules with lam­i­nated pic­tures of those nom­i­nated for best fe­male ac­tress at­tached.

Jules made a beeline for the photo of Natalie Port­man clad in a leo­tard for her role as a bal­le­rina in The Black Swan. So it was no sur­prise when Natalie picked up the gong on Sun­day night.

‘As a full cousin to the leg­endary Paul he has al­ready ex­hib­ited an ex­cit­ing de­gree of psy­chic aware­ness and we’re con­fi­dent that his abil­ity is of a level sim­i­lar, or per­haps even greater, than his cousin,’ said Pat Ó Súil­leab­háin, cen­tre man­ager.

Cyn­ics should think twice be­fore dis­miss­ing fu­ture ad­vice from Psy­chic Jules as oc­topi are highly in­tel­li­gent crea­tures, they have learned to open jars, mimic other oc­to­puses, and solve mazes in lab tests.
