Paul the Octopus Picks Semi Final Winner
It appears the earlier post regarding Paul the Octopus’s prediction is actually a hoax that seems to have gone viral on the interwebs, and like most things viral, Bowl Philosophy caught it but with prescribed rinsing and the proper medication we should be rid of the infection quick-sharp.
Paul has not yet flexed his gypsy skills to determine the victor in the Germany vs Spain Semi Final, but when he does, we’ll be all over it like a rash…. apologies for the false alarm. [Tuesady 14h00 - Paul's officially chosen here]

Paul the Octopus (Paul the Octopus previously featured here) is back at work today, putting his “mad gypsy skills” to use again. Bad news for German fans though, the little cephalopod has picked Spain to win the semi-final encounter in Durban on Wednesday night. Hard to believe after this youthful German side annihilated Maradona’s Argentina 4-0 on the weekend, so far Paul has a 100% record from the 2010 Football World Cup, and the Germans are without their top scorer, Thomas Mueller, after he picked up a second yellow on Saturday. Spain played below par against Paraguay, though news of Paul’s prediction might reinvigorate this Spanish side… should be a cracker of a match.
