Millions of Germans were praying yesterday that Paul the Octopus was wrong in its latest World Cup match prediction but Paul was right, his sixth correct “guess” at this summer’s world cup.
German fans have now turned against Paul, who was born in Britain and later moved to the German aquarium, after he forecast the Spanish win. And on Berlin’s “fan-mile”, some sections of the crowd also turned against their former hero, with German fans singing anti-octopus songs.
According to Der Western daily paper, there have been “a host of comments on Facebook, Twitter … suggesting Paul should be fried, barbecued or turned into a seafood salad or paella”. “Others wanted to throw him into the shark tank,” the paper wrote on its website.
