While Paul the Octopus has been hogging the headlines,Mani the Parakeet has been doing an equally good job at predicting world cup match winners in Singapore.
And while Paul is still basking the glory of all it’s successful predictions Mani has gone ahead of him and predicted the winner of the World Cup Finals.
The parakeet will probably become the National Bird of Netherlands if it’s prediction comes out right.No prizes for guessing which country it chose to be World Champions 2010.
Actually it turns out now that Paul has in fact also made it’s prediction.
About 7 minutes ago.
And it has picked Spain.
This has now become a classic struggle.
An irresistable octopus meeting an immovable parrot…!
