They must be very proud of themselves now.

First time win the cup

———————–Not sure if the PM joking or not———–

Octopus Paul, the cephalopod who correctly picked Spain’s first World Cup victory has been offered state protection by Spain Prime Minister Jose Zapatero.

“I am concerned for the octopus … I am thinking of sending him a protective team,” joked Mr Zapatero on Spanish radio.

The Prime Minister and other Spanish politicians are concerned that Octopus Paul may come to harm from disgruntled German fans whose team lost in the semifinal to Spain.

Spain’s Environment and Fisheries Minister had this to say.

“On Monday, I shall be at the European Council of Ministers and I shall be asking for a [fishing] ban on Paul the octopus so the Germans do not eat him!” he said.

The octopus correctly predicted all of Germany’s World Cup results including the semifinal loss to Spain.
