Traitor! Paul the Oracle Octopus predicts Germany will beat England

Traitor! Paul the Oracle Octopus predicts Germany will beat England... (but everyone knows you can't trust a mollusk)


The mollusk has predicted a German win over England at the World Cup on Sunday.The two-year-old's reputation as a football oracle already well established.He predicted Germany's win over Australia and Ghana and its loss to Serbia.
Don't do it, Paul! The octopus is pictured choosing a mussel from a glass box with the German flag - instead of a glass box with the England flag, in the western German city of Oberhausen today
During the 2008 European Championship, he predicted 80 percent of all German games right, Tanja Munzig, a spokeswoman for the Sea Life Aquarium in the western city of Oberhausen, said today.
Paul - who was born in England but raised in Germany - was faced with a choice between a mussel marked with the German flag over a mussel with the English St. George's Cross.
