According to Paul the Octopus, Spain wins the FIFA 2010 World Cup Finals in South Africa. Paul predicted the winners of many World Cup matches, and the creature has been correct so far. So, what makes us think that he won’t be correct again? Nothing!

In fact, he predicted that Spain would beat Germany in their quarter finals match…and guess what? Spain won 1-0! Again, Paul predicted that Germany would beat Uruguay in their third-place match…and yes! He was right again, Germany won 3-2.

Who is Paul the Octopus anyway? Paul is a regular down-to-earth Octopus that lives somewhere in Germany, under captivity of course. He makes his predictions by choosing one of two bottles containing the flags of both nations. Well, we would imagine that there has to be something worthwhile in these two bottles, and yes there is. That something is a piece of eatable goody bar. Paul chooses between the two bottles and open the one he thinks will win the championship. Sources have it that he has already chosen the winner between Spain and the Netherlands, and he has chosen Spain to win.

The Netherlands fans are prepared to capture and fry the 8-foot sea floor dweller, Paul if his prediction is correct. In fact, this was exactly what the German fans threatened to do when their team loss against Spain. So, by all means, the Netherlands fans have the right to feel very angry with Paul, just like the German fans did, and we can be assured that they are angry!

As a result of possible harm to Paul, the Spanish President plans to send a contingent of secret service agents to guard against any attacks on the Octopus. After all, the Octopus owes no one he just tells it like it is. At this point Paul is God to many, especially España fans.

A religion will soon be created under the direction of Paul the Prophet Octopus. We can only wonder what it would be called. Some suggestions could be: Octopusism, Octopusianity, Octopusish, Octopusa, Octopusu, and so on. Drop a few lines in the comment box below of any other names that could possibly be added. By the way, if anyone needs healing, Paul the Prophet Octopus could be a friable option!
