Adolf Hitler versus Paul the Octopus

It’s been an interesting World Cup. My wish at the start of the tournament was for a Spain versus Netherlands final with Spain edging it. That way, either the best team in the world is rewarded for several years of brilliant football OR the Dutch finally complete what they could not finish in 1974 and 1978. Never in my wildest dreams did I think it would happen! Roll on Monday morning.

But my abiding memory of the World Cup 2010 (apart from France, England, and Italy all hilariously choking) is of Paul the Octopus who has been successfully predicting the Germany results – including the semi-final loss to Spain.

Paul the Octopus has now been immortalised in a classic “Downfall” remix. Funny – I thought that YouTube had squashed all the Downfall videos.
