Germans Demand Killing Of Octopus Paul After Wc Semi-final Defeat by frankoko(m): 7:44am On Jul 08, 2010
Oberhausen (Germany), July 8(ANI): After Germany's heartbreaking 1-0 defeat to Spain in the World Cup semi-final, angry German fans are calling to kill Paul, the psychic octopus, who had predicted that Spain would win the do-or-die clash.


German fans had been praying that the two-year-old octopus, who was born in Britain and later moved to the German aquarium in Oberhausen, had made a mistake when he chose the Spaniards to triumph.

Some sections of the crowd were also singing anti-octopus songs.

According to a local newspaper, there have been "a host of comments on Facebook, Twitter , suggesting Paul should be fried, barbecued or turned into a seafood salad or paella".

"Others wanted to throw him into the shark tank," The Sydney Morning Herald quoted the paper, as having written on its website.

Major predictions, which came true in this World Cup, have been in the Germany-England Round of 16 clash and Germany-Argentina quarterfinal game. Paul had chosen Germany's flag on both the occasions.

If the eight-limbed oracle survives the threats, the fans would be thinking twice about dismissing his advice in future.

@tkb417,

Have you read up about the soothsayer?

During the lead-up to German international football matches, Paul is presented with two identical containers, each containing food. Both containers are marked with a flag; one with the flag of Germany, and the other with the flag of Germany's opponent. In each instance, Paul's choice of food box is interpreted as his prediction as to which will be the victorious team. Paul is reported to have correctly chosen the winning team in five of Germany's six UEFA Euro 2008 matches and in each of Germany's six matches in the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

Paul was tooooo young to make the right decision 2 years ago.

Now, Paul has come of age.

If Paul predicts you will be rich, Just go and sleep.

While snurring you'll attract money.

As simple as that.

Octopus Paul picks Spain whereas Parakeet Mani chooses Netherlands


Paul, the Octopus has been in the news more than anyone. Everyone is talking about Psychic Oracle Octopus Paul Allen. Paul predictions have been one hundred percent correct and have a record now in predicting the matches in the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2010.

German Psychic Octopus became a celebrity overnight with his predictions. He has a rival at hand now, Singapore’s Mani; the Parakeet. Like Octopus Paul, Mani too has been correct in his predictions for all the quarter-final ties and the Spain-Germany semi-final.

Psychic Oracle Octopus Paul Allen has his pick for the FIFA final – Spain whereas; the psychic parakeet has picked up Netherlands as 2010 winner.

Paul picked out a mussel from the tank with the Spanish flag, ignoring the tank that had the Dutch flag, shown live on a TV show all over Europe. As per the psychic Octopus, Spain will be FIFA World Cup 2010 champions and regarding the place 3 and 4, Paul Allen, the Octopus has predicted that Germany will beat Uruguay to take the 3rd place.

This is how Mani, the Parakeet works:

M Muniyappan, the owner of Mani, puts two cards in front of Mani. These cards are printed with the flags of two countries. Mani turns to the card of the country which he think is going to win.

It seems FIFA final is between German Paul and Singapore’s Mani. Lets wait and watch whose prediction gets it right.

Wahala dey, make we come see who correct, grin cheesy where do you place your money
Re: Germans Demand Killing Of Octopus Paul After Wc Semi-final Defeat by Sauron1: 4:44pm On Jul 09, 2010
I will go with Paul
Paul predicted all the matches Germany played correctly.
He's been top drawer and the last time he predicted wrongly, he was still a baby. grin


Mani predicted all the Q/final matches correctly but he got it wrong with the Uruguay/Holland match.
This will finally put to bed who the best psychic is.
Will it be Mani or Paul the mollusk. . . . .Less than 60 hrs to go.
