If you are one of the millions of people who watched the World Cup this year, you know about Paul the Octopus. Paul correctly picked eight straight games in the World Cup, down to the final match. He even provoked the Germans by correctly predicting their semi-final loss, resulting in a substantial number of fans promoting "Cook Paul the Octopus" slogans.

Paul's feats will be remembered for years, and he has now been immortalized in gold. Valued at almost $200,000, the golden Paul is made out of 22 karat gold, and was recently displayed at the India International Jewelry Show.
