Serve Him Up with Paella?


Paul the Psychic Octopus has been at it again. So far he's successfully predicted the result of every single World Cup match. Now he's f***ed up by announcing that Spain will beat Holland at Sunday's final, which would break the hearts of the country's 16 million inhabitants (including mine).

Paul's also unpopular in his native Germany for foretelling its defeat by Spain. There were even calls for him to be roasted with lemon juice and olive oil or turned into a plate of paella.

Fortunately, Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luiz Rodriguez Zapatero has announced that he will provide Paul with a team of bodyguards. What he seems to have forgotten is that even the greatest clairvoyants can sometimes get it wrong.

Because the Budgie in Malaysia had indicated Holland as World Champion and he has been always right too. The World Championship has turned into a contest between an Octopus and a Budgerigar.

And there's also Jari the Cat in Amsterdam. His human chucked two cuddly creatures - one white and one orange - onto a nearby roof so that Jari could choose which one to retrieve. Of course, he chose the orange one... which had probably been spiked with some meaty substance!

Somebody told me that this curiously clever creature originated in British waters - can anyone confirm?

Damn! Paul got it right and the entire Dutch nation is mourning. Maybe he does come from British waters, but certainly not Dutch.
