Just arrived back in Mallorca yesterday a few hours before the third place game of Germany vs. Uruguay. You know who won right? Paul the octopus from the Oberhausen aquarium in Germany did ….. hours before the game. GERMANY!
And now el pulpo (the octopus in spanish) Paul says Spain will win the World Cup championship.
At the moment, Paul has correctly predicted the winner of all six of Germany’s World Cup matches: four victories and two losses, including the quarter-final loss against Spain.
As a result of that last call, Paul is not very popular in Germany these days. Newsweekly Der Spiegel reports that the Twittersphere is buzzing with death threats against the octopus in the form of calamari recipes.
Spain is even considering offering Paul asylum “so that the Germans don’t eat him,” environmental minister Elena Espinosa tells Der Spiegel. If Paul’s next prediction comes true, all of Spain will welcome him with open arms: Paul and his own eight arms say Spain will beat Holland for the World Cup championship. Watch Paul, in all his glory choose SPAIN. Viva España!
And stay tuned peeps … I have finally returned from my month-long excursion in the USA and have much to share. Sorry I have been away for so long. My apologies, and I promise to make it up to you. Muah! oxo.
