The Secret is Behind Me!

The Octopus named Paul who was right with his world cup predictions has died in mysterious circumstances. Betting firms are strongly suspected of foul play.

However a spokesanimal for the Beast Betting Bureau (BBB) announced the amazing feats of a Bull who has an astounding power of seeing into the future. In experiments held at a research laboratory, being kept secret, a Bull named Gascoigne hit the Bulls Eye with his predictions.

Gascoigne the Bull had cows lined up with the colours of football teams on their rears. Gascoigne then chose the cow for his pleasure and note was taken of the football colour preferred. Every cow selected by Gascoigne had the colours of a team that won the following day.

Secret betting syndicates, having been sold the information have made a packet with the Bookies who are fast running out of money.

Sceptics abound, naturally. One footbal fan dismissed the news as a load of old Bull. Another declared it was a 'Cock and Bull' story.

More information on this sensational Bull is being leaked to your correspondent who, after making his winnings next Saturday, will be leaving for the Bahamas.

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