Paul the octopus’ prediction dooms Germany

Paul the octopus of the Sea Life Aquarium in Germany has correctly predicted the German’s loss to Spain in the 2010 World Cup Semifinals.

The water-dwelling Paul is 6-0 in picking the games in which the German team has played.

His aquarium caretakers have presented him with two food buckets that are identical aside from one painted with the German flag and one with the opponent’s flag.

Paul will have to choose between the Netherlands and Spain in the World Cup Finals.
