I shit you not!
Octopus Paul Allen is no less than a hero in the ongoing FIFA World Cup
2010. No, he is not there is South Africa but resides in an aquarium in
Germany and does what soccer analysts and big time football gurus could
not do: predict the outcome of a match well in advance by just sitting
in his own aquarium and believe it or not the predictions are turning
out to be 100% correct. The aquatic creature Paul Octopus is sixth time
correct when it predicted Spain’s victory in the semi finals of FIFA
World Cup 2010 here in Durban.
Now a quick wrap up on the history of this octopus Germany. Paul was
born at the Sea Life Park in Weymouth, England and is two years old. It
currently resides in Sea Life Aquarium in Oberhausen, Germany and has a
history of correctly predicting the results if major German
international football matches including FIFA World Cup.
And its fame could be
seen when the sixth prediction made by it came out to be true when
Spain defeated the mighty and much in form Germans by a stunning header
by Spanish striker Carles Puyol that led Spain marching their way to the
finals of the World Cup football.
Octopus prediction in judging the winner in each of Germany’s six
matches in the current FIFA WC 2010 came out to be true. It has
predicted Germans loss to Serbia in the group stage, and now a loss to
Spain in the semis. It’s still a question mark as to how the creature
does it each time. It seems to possess some mysterious capabilities in
doing so. You must be wondering how he does it. Well, the Germans just
place the flag of the two countries up for the match in its aquarium
contained in two boxes. The Octopus Paul then after taking his time
chooses the winner and conveys it to the waiting spectators by sitting
on the box that contains the winner’s flag.
But it remains to be seen whether he will predict the results of the
upcoming final and match for the third place because Paul is seen to be
predicting only those matches where Germans play till now. Every one is
eagerly waiting to see whether its psychic powers are only limited to
the matches played by the Germans or it can be explored for the other
Lets put our bets on The Psychic Mollusk and squeeze the results out of him for the final!
We'll make a fortune! Then again, that spineless German may be juts fuckin' with us.
Then we can enjoy a nice Calamari Dinner.
