image for Paul, the psychic octopus, picks winner of 2nd semi-final in World Cup
Paul, the psychic octopus predicts a win for Spain

"A 'psychic' octopus named Paul has picked Spain will win against Germany in their World Cup semi-final clash."

This is one of the headlines on an online newspaper.

Some German supporters believe in this octopus so deeply, as Paul predicted all of their previous wins. Many are not even bothering to stay in South Africa to watch the semi-final, they're heading down to France to watch the rest of The Tour de France. Dreams of Glory shattered.

Some supporters sobbed loudly as they boarded the 4-seater aeroplanes which were to fly them to France. They could not be consolled and some were prescribed sedatives by the supporter's doctor Dr. Hoogivenz A. Sheet.

It is hoped that if Germany DOES in fact WIN, that these German supporters won't go searching for Paul to get their revenge for missing the game. Paul has been taken into hiding, as a precaution, by his owners until AFTER the World Cup Final on July 11th.

(Update: The Spoof have a SCOOP re: Paul - in Isle of Wight News - Magazine Section. Ssh!)

Morrisons has a 'buy two get one free' special on Baked Beans until the end of The World Cup
