Paul de Octopus!!
« on: July 07, 2010, 03:34:21 PM »
Paul de Octopus picking Spain


I noticed that Paul de Octupus usually picks the box on the right!

So all they have to do if they want Spain to win is to replace the Germany flag with a Holland flag!

If he goes for the right-hand box once again regardless of where they place the Dutch or Spanish flag then my theory is correct, i.e. he prefers the right-hand box!

What allyuh think? Any bets on?!  :D

Paul de Octupus has two more World Cup games left to predict Germany vs Uruguay and Holland vs Spain.

Now allyuh watch his movements and see what I telling allyuh.

There is money to be made on this, any takers?  ;)

Thanks for that extra info but my theory still looks to be true, he usually goes for the box on the right!

So there you have it folks, Paul de Octupus has picked Germany to win the 3rd place play off and Spain to win the final for 1st place!  ;)

Let the betting begin, I going with Paul on both counts, any takers?!  8)

Actually after further research, Mani missed one of the semi-finals, picking Uruguay. so  he's actually 5 for 6.

This will be his first non-German match, we'll see how he does.

They only live about 3 years, so this will be the last big tourney for him. Wonder if he has progeny?
