Me v Paul The Octopus Can't Post or Reply Privately

I'm not usually into predicting outcomes of matches, but despair at the quality of punditry elsewhere led me to give it a go before the quarterfinals, as follows:

"I would not be surprised if:

* The Netherlands upset Brazil.
* Uruguay beat Ghana.
* Germany "upset" Argentina.
* Spain beat Paraguay.
* The Netherlands beat Uruguay
* Germany beat Spain.

A repeat of the 1974 World Cup Final, which Germany dominate but this time, The Netherlands win, in a reversal of fortune 36 years on.
5 out of 5 so far, and I have Germany to beat Spain in today's game, but Paul The Octopus, who is 5 for 5 in predicting the outcome of Germany's games so far this World Cup, has gone for Spain.

Paul got the the result of Germany v Spain at Euro 2008 wrong - maybe it's his bogey fixture.

He was on TV last night, on one of the news Channels, not in the studio but a filmed report. I'm sure it said he was British born !.

He has just been on the BBC News, Paul was born in Weymouth but moved to Germany in 2006

I see the Koreans eat them live.

Presume Paul might have to move back to Weymouth.

Paul the Octopus is dead.

The article doesn't say what is to be done with the carcass.

Apparently the Spanish and Qataris had heard that he hadn't tipped them for 2018 and 2022, and next thing he had 'an accident'.

Honestly, there's jokes flying around about Paul and the ink isn't even dry yet.



Where's the 'ignore this poster' button?

Would he be allowed now, I thought Dustbins were outlawed by the re-cycling Police. He would have to be a Wheelie Bin now. Can't see Ted Rodgers doing the remake though.

Paul the octopus dead?! But he owed me sick squid! (Okay, I know that the octopus is a cephalopod mollusc in the order Octopoda, and the squid is a marine cephalopod of the order Teuthida, but wht let the facts get in the way of a (good) joke).

Judging by this picture he's about to hand over another bung.

Either that or he's playing with his nipple ring. Tongue
