Kudos to Paul the Octopus for selecting Spain as the winner of this year's World Cup (and selecting Germany for third place in Saturday's game). In all, the "psychic" cephalopod correctly—and consecutively—picked eight matches. The Germans hailed him as one of their own until he chose Spain over Germany in the semifinal. Although he was proven right, Germans were demanding Paul be killed—or grilled with just a little oil and garlic to be precise. In fact, security at Sea Life in Oberhausen was boosted over the weekend.
