image for Isle of Wight News - New Secondary colour discovered
Inside the octopus!

A new secondary colour has been discovered by Professor Harold Boggoff, a long time resident of Newby, Isle of Wight.

When interviewed he said:

"Well I was in my lab., by which I obviously mean 'laboratory', when it happened. I was dissecting an octopus which had been dumped on my doorstep when I pulled something out from its stomach. At first I thought it was its liver, but upon closer examination, I discovered it was a tiny 'receiver', the type they use in childrens' remote controlled toys.

At first I was puzzled, until I thought back to the World Cup Football series, don't ya know. That's when it clicked.

I realized we'd all been taken in by the Germans. Paul the psychic octopus wasn't psychic at all. We'd been had. The people working at the aqua...acqua....aqcua....place where Paul 'lived' had rigged the whole psychic situation.

When asked why he had called The Spoof offices stating that he had discovered a new secondary colour he simply said:

"Well I thought readers would be fed up reading about Paul and would ignore ANOTHER Paul the Psychic Octopus story so I made up the bit about a new secondary colour."

Make Lady Godiva's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
