"Paul the Psychic Octopus" Would Be A Good Band Name, Others Agree, So Let's Lock It Down

Paul the Psychic Octopus is just your average old octopus, ho-hum.

That is until it’s feeding time, of course, and he’s some kind of crazy oracle Cephalopod that correctly predicts the results of major German football matches. He communicates this information by landing on one of two boxes containing food labeled with the competing teams’ flags.

His choices have pissed off some fans, and so now people want to eat him. (ed: please don’t. his name is paul. too human. human rules apply here.)

Now, as expected in this day and age, people see the phrase “Paul the Psychic Octopus” and think hot damn, that’s some sort of great band name or kid’s show or something. This is totally true, and it would be a great band name for your new band, right? But you better act quick.

First band, musician, or artist to send us a song by your new name as “Paul the Psychic Octopus,” or just “Psychic Octopus” wins the race, I think. We’ll post it, thereby helping your Google ranking, and I’m sure some sort of copyright lawyer or whoever handles those disputes can use that it the court of law to back up your claim. Also, hell, you’ll be the first band of hopefully many on our just announced new indie label, Psychic Animals.
