(Newser) – Paul the "psychic" octopus has already ticked off nations whose World Cup defeats he predicted, but now he's got a new enemy: President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The Iranian leader has denounced the octopus in several recent speeches, accusing him of being a symbol of decadence and of "western propaganda and superstition," the Telegraph reports. No comment as yet from the pampered Paul or his new agent.
