As if this wasn't strange enough...

Paul The Psychic Octopus Backs Spain To Beat Holland In World Cup Final

We have this looniness from our friends at PETA:

PETA Calls For Octopus Oracle To Be Set Free

What a world.

Sometimes these posts write themselves.

Peta would also like all dogs and cats, cattle, goats, sheep and guinea pigs released into the wild also.

They are evil people.

Some of the PETA people may be evil, but I think the overwhelming majority of them are utterly and incomprehensively stupid.

They don't take science or math classes and have no idea of the
consequences of their idiotic notions.

Cube nailed it.

This octopus would likely not die of starvation, it would be prey to something first because it does not know how to avoid predators.

cube said...

Chuck: I'm hoping people are just joking about the oracle-ability of this octopus. It seems as though Paul prefers the right side of the display, so I'm thinking who is responsible for deciding which team is listed where. In other words, follow the money. I guess time will tell.

Wow.. "what a world" is right, LOL.

This sets of the fight we have always dreamed of: Soccer fans vs. PETA. If onlt there was a way for both to lose.

Always On Watch said...

Gah! An octopus as oracle?

The world just gets weirder and weirder.

Z said...

didn't the OCTO-ORACLE say Germany was going to beat Spain? Oops (and DARN!)

cube said...

Karen Howes: It's getting more insane my the day.

Trestin: LOL! I like the match up.

Always On Watch: Crazier and crazier.

Z: I'm not big on soccer so I don't know Paul's record. I did watch the end of the World Cup and, yes, I was thinking of Paul when I saw Spain win.

Ah, PeTA. The ANIMAL rights group that uses misogyny against women to get their point across.

Brooke: The world is full of useful idiots and the smart people who use them effectively.
