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.
