Paul The Psychic Octopus Does It Again

I haven't really been following the World Cup, but I knew Germany didn't stand a chance yesterday.
Because I heard it from an octopus. That's right, you heard me, I said octopus.
Check it out:"Paul the octopus who resides at the Aquarium Sea Life Centre in Oberhausen, Germany, has become an international phenomenon after correctly forecasting the results for all six of Germany's World Cup games.
However, the octopus shocked Germany on Tuesday by picking Spain to win - a result, as it turns out, that was correct. Some Germans now want to see Paul publicly barbecued.
Paul will also make his prediction for the third-place play-off match between Germany and Uruguay.
Paul's handlers will follow the now familiar routine. Two boxes will be lowered into his tank, each containing his favourite seafood food as well as the flags of the two opposing teams.
Whichever box Paul picks food from first is adjudged the winner.
Afterwards, Paul will be offered boxes with Spain and Holland flags on the front.
However, this will only happen if he is deemed not too tired and still hungry.
A spokesman for his aquarium said. 'We do not want to overburden him.'"

If only I was a betting man......
