• Paul the psychic octopus is biggest English success

    by  •  • Posterous

    Although its footballers have long since returned home in disgrace, one
    English native has become the surprise success story of the World Cup. Paul, an
    octopus who was born in Dorset, has correctly predicted the result of all six
    matches involving Germany and now all eyes are on him as he prepares to pick the
    winner of Sunday’s final.


    Fans are now placing money on the mystic mollusc himself, rather than the
    outcome of the big game, while senior politicians have expressed concern about
    threats to his safety made by supporters of losing teams.

    Paul has also become a sensation on the internet, becoming one of the most
    talked-about topics on Twitter and Facebook while doctored images have been
    created of him appearing to decide the victor of forthcoming elections around
    the world.
