Paul the Octopus Has a New Enemy in Kazakh Bookies, Taiwanese Sparrows
Paul the Octopus, who is, by German accounts, retired but still not allowed to take a little Spanish vacay to celebrate, is now on the shit list of the Kazakhstan Association of Bookmakers, who believe that he has cut into their proceeds. According to the Telegraph, they made just half the profits expected this year. Paul, better watch your kneecaps. Meanwhile, fortune tellers in Taiwan claim that their psychic sparrows pecked at the Spanish flag way before Paul ate a tidbit from the Spanish container in his tank, but they didn't have the attention of the international media the way he did. Oh, everybody's a psychic now. [JDoll]
