OMG, since Paul the Octopus correctly predicted Germany’s fate in the World Cup he has received numerous death threats by angry German supporters wanting to grill him and throw him in a paella. Such is the concerns, Spanish Prime Minister Jose Zapatero is offering the eight legged creature state protection. Even the Spanish Industry Minister demanded Paul be given an “immediate” free transfer to Spain to “ensure his protection”. Despite concerns for Paul’s safety he will remain at Sea Life in Germany.
Psst No word on whether Paul will be asked to predict the finals outcome or whether he really gives a toss now that his team’s out!
