Because even a coin can land on heads six times in a row, an octopus in Germany has been declared psychic after correctly picking every single one of Germanyâ€™s six World Cup matches correctly, right down to their loss to Spain. And now? Germans want revenge.
Some Germans are calling for a public roasting of the oracle octopus who correctly picked the winner of all six of their national soccer team’s World Cup matches — including a bitter defeat to Spain on Wednesday.
“Nothing beats grilled octopus,” said Dolores Lusch, a Germany fan who works on a Berlin fish stall. “Cut him up in thin slices and grill him on all sides with a dash of lemon juice, olive oil and garlic on it. Delicious!”
What the hell people? This is a psychic octopus youâ€™re talking about! He should be a national treasure, and should also tell me what tomorrowâ€™s powerball numbers are going to be. He also might kill you with psychic brainwaves if you try anything on him.
