Finally, we have the definitive proof that Paul the Octopus actually is brilliant — he’s on Team Jacob.

The world’s most notorious octopus made a name for himself by accurately predicting–repeatedly–the outcomes of the final World Cup matches. And while the world was awed/impressed/confused by his track record, there were some who still didn’t seem convinced of Paul’s skills.

Well, critics, doubt no more. Paul was faced with the ultimate choice–Team Edward or Team Jacob. Proving he’s still got it, he chose correctly. [youtube=]

Though it must be noted that you don’t need to be psychic to choose Team Jacob. You just need eyes.
