Paul the Nazi Octopus Still Feeling The Heat, Innocent Octopus Lost In Revenge Killing

August 13, 2010

Paul The Octopus became famous for correctly predicting the result of eight consecutive World Cup clashes — finally picking winners Spain for the final.

But presenter Roberto Pettinato, from Argentina’s ‘A Perfect World’ programme, wanted revenge after the tentacled soothsayer called the results so well. Argentina fans blamed him for their World Cup exit after he correctly predicted Germany would beat them and some have voiced a desire to eat him.

So after branding the animal a “Nazi” he grabbed an octopus live on air and claimed to be killing it as he hacked its head off and put bits of it in a blender.

Pettinato said as he lowered him into the machine: “Your moment has arrived, little Nazi octopus.”

Paul the octopus had a 100 per cent record during the tournament.

William Hill has revealed punters won up to half a million pounds backing the mystic mollusc’s predictions.

Quantcast But some angry German fans called for him to be thrown into a shark tank after he predicted their semi-final loss to the newly crowned World Cup winners.
