Paul, the psychic octopus, is now admired by all Spanish speaking people around the world, after he correctly predicted Spain's win in the semi-final against Germany this week. (Football World Cup)
In Germany, where Paul resides, he has angry mobs out looking for him. He HAS been removed and is said to be in hiding on The Isle of Wight (so reports The Isle of Wight News this week).
Spaniards are hoping to 'rescue' Paul and take him to safety before the Germans catch him and have him 'cooked and served'. Although Spaniards love to eat cooked octopus, they have promised to guard Paul with their lives if they find him.
They want him to predict the outcome of Sunday's final, although Paul has only been predicting the outcome of Germany's games so far.
If and when they find him, spokesperson Fernando S Hydaway, said (in Spanish of course),
"Yes, we will find him and protect him. If he predicts Spain to lose and then we DO, that's a different story.
"If that happens, then we will cook him and share him with the Germans. They can bring the beer!"
Paul has not been seen for a few days now.
