Paul the Octopus Picks Spain
In case you've been on a different planet, that nasty creature has been picking games for Germany the entire World Cup. To date, he has correctly picked each of Germany's 6 matches, win or lose. Based at the Sea Life Aquarium in the western German city of Oberhausen, Paul was set lose this morning and settled with the Spanish mussel.
The Spanish environment and fisheries minister, Elena Espinosa, added, "On Monday, I shall be at the European Council of Ministers and I shall be asking for a [fishing] ban on Paul the octopus so the Germans do not eat him." I really don't think she's half joking...
