Paul the Octopus

Well if you’ve been following the World Cup, then you must have heard of Paul the Octopus. Before each German international football match, Paul is presented with food in two containers, one marked with a German flag and the other with the opposing teams, as seen in the video above. The one he chooses is interpreted as his predicted victor. For the Euro Cup back in 2008, he predicted 5/6 games. For the World Cup this year, he has predicted 6/6. I kind of hate him.
