Germany’s legendary psychic Paul the Octopus – who successfully predicted the outcome for every German World Cup game – may have met his match. Colombia’s Oscar the Octopus is also taking a punt at predicting the outcome of the Spain-Holland final!
Meet Oscar, a slimy little octopus who calls a Santa Marta aquarium on Colombia’s Caribbean coast home.
Oscar took some time out of his busy day of tearing apart and devouring crabs and shrimp to offer millions of Colombians a glimmer of knowledge about the big match scheduled for Sunday.
When given the choice to open a lid from a jar with the Spanish flag or a jar with the Dutch flag, it appears that both Oscar and Paul are on the same wave-length; both selected the Spanish flag, indicating that Colombia’s former colonial master will indeed defeat Holland this weekend.
