Reports have been published on the recent demise of Paul the psychic octopus. Don't panic 'Paul lovers' , the writer was mislead and will be embarrassed to hear that he has indeed 'been had'.
The octopus that died with its tentacles tied in knots as a result of getting sexually frustrated when a set of bagpipes was thrown into the tank (the octopus mistook the pipes for a female of his own species who had dressed up in plaid/tartan, for the evening). Well HE was a DECOY octopus placed in the tank to fool would be felons, who are indeed, out for his blood and suckers.
Do not fret 'Paul lovers'. Paul is in a safe house in the Octopus Protection Programme and his handlers promise that Paul will soon deliver his much anticipated predictions for both the Sunday Final between Spain and Netherlands as well as the Saturday game between Germany and Uruguay
I feel a tad embarrassed for the misled writer who published prematurely. (But just a 'tad')
