The octopus has correctly predicted every match in the World Cup.

You realize that the flag images are being photo shopped and the predictions are fake?

If Spain plays like they did against Germany they have a good chance. Especially if the Dutch come out flat like Germany did.

Oh thank you so much for spoiling the end of the world cup...

No point in watching the match now that we all know how it will end.

I still admire the PR manager of the Sea Life Oberhausen. The guy who started this whole oracle thing needs a salary bonus. Incredible free PR. This has to be one of the most successful PR campaigns free of charge ever.

The last final the octopus predicted wrong, as well!

Besides, apparantly there is also a Nostradamus-parakeet in Singapore who predicts Oranje to win.

Wonder why there's nobody predicting a draw? Oh, right, somebody needs to win the cup in the end...

Penalties, anybody? 

Seriously, am I the only one that thinks this world cup is having 2 'small finals' only?

I mean: Holland - Spain, that doesn't look like a final of the world championship too me at all?

Now, Brasil - Germany, THAT would have been a real rocker, but the current one just can't seduce me and neither can the octupus predictions.

With this many correct predictions, I would go with Paul el Purpo.

hmmmm..... Paul Nostradamus Octopus the Great had it right again tonight by predicting the win of Germany over Uruguay.... Garmany took a while to get to 2-2 and then score the last winning goal.

This octopus is really amazing. I am really curious if he will be right again tomorrow with his prediction of Spain winning the final match and taking the Cup back home while I will be looking at the final with totally neutral eyes.    Wow!

All the power to Paul the Octopus!!!!

You can't make squid rings out of an octopus. Now pulpo a la galega, that's another story

One has to admit that octupus is doing far better than statistical rules would have predicted him to!

Rather than something like 1 out of 2 correct, he's doing a straight 8 out of 8!

Is he also doing lottery numbers?

Let's see how long before Ladbrokes or William Hill in England decides to buy this octopus and use it as a source for legal sports bets in that country.

25 Silver1SWA : Well somebody did the predictions and they did very well! Evenly photoshopped, the predictions were still made in advance. Still impressive.
