Paul the Precognitive Octopus has picked Spain to win the World Cup.
And ignore that old curmudgeon PeeZee, who’s had his fill of Paul. He’s just smarting from having been caught in a tryst with philandering South Carolina gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley. Here he is, surprised by photographers in Charleston while leaving a hotel with Haley. (The wig doesn’t fool anyone.)

On Utrechtschaak.nl(chess forum in the Netherlands) is this little gem:
no picture, but look at utrechtschaak.nl – forum – wk voetbal
Looks more like Ed Brayton if you ask me.
That is not a science beard! He doesn’t have one either.
Both as a Dutchman and a skeptic I have to disagree – it would be great if Paul was wrong.
Meh. I think Paul just goes by whose team uniform he likes best.
For those of us who wished England would make it to the final apparently we weren’t specific enough. As referees doesn’t count! Stupid djinni.
As someone with heavily Spanish roots, I quote the eloquent Nigel Powers: “There are two kinds of people in this world I can’t stand: People who are intolerant of other people’s cultures, and the DUTCH!!!”
That bare-cheeked fellow looks nothing like me! And the woman is not as attractive as the TrophyWife™!
I’m going with the most secular nation,Netherlands. Am I wrong?
Well, strictly speaking, the inhabitants of Netherlands are not the most secular in Europe – and the Spaniards are not that religious either:
As we often hear in the UK, especially from the Germans, ‘football is a game played by two teams of 11, which we win’.
Let’s hope that it’s good game and that the best team win; Viva Espana!!
What was I thinking of? Ah well, the world is still turning!
