PAUL THE Octopus is a 2 year old octopus with a history of correctly predicting a total rate of 11 out of 12 games constituting deviation from flipping coin to a Binomial test.
As the Telegraph explains:
Following the quarter-final prediction where Paul correctly guessed Argentina would lose to Germany the Argentineans threatened to kill the octopus and put it in a paella.
The newspaper El Dia gave this recipe for anyone daring to capture Paul: "All you need is four normal potatoes, olive oil for taste and a little pepper."
