…but from the BBC, this past Friday:

‘Psychic’ octopus predicts Germany victory over England

Here’s more:

When consulted, Paul the octopus chose a mussel from a jar with the German flag on it ahead of one in a similar jar bearing the cross of St George.

The two-year-old cephalopod has a record of predicting past German results in this manner, his owners say.

Paul has so far correctly predicted all of Germany’s results in South Africa.

By the way, the octopus was right again, as Germany beat England 4-1 yesterday.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
