Paul the Mighty Octopus Oracle

July 12, 2010

Mr. Crumpet is understandably disappointed that The Netherlands did not emerge victorious in the 2010 World Cup. Still, congratulations to the men in orange for a great tournament!

However Mr. Crumpet and Orange Bear are both in awe of Paul the Mighty Octopus Oracle (or “Pulpo Paul” as he is known in Spain), who not only correctly predicted Spain’s win but was eight-for-eight in his predictions during this year’s World Cup. The Weymouth-born cephalopod resides in Oberhausen, Germany, but perhaps should consider taking his act to Delphi.

“I shall never say a cutting word about an octopus again,” declares Orange Bear.
