Handicapping the contest, Paul, the psychic octopus living in a German aquarium and known for accuracy in predicting the outcome of games, has confidently picked Spain to win.

By the way, there are rumors about Paul, the prescient octopus. One rumor is that someone has put out a contract on the life of Paul. Another is that someone has offered to buy Paul for tens of thousands of dollars. No confirmation on either.

In other World Cup news, popular Dutch adult film star, Bobbi Eden, headliner of classics like "Innocent Until Proven Filthy", "Humpalong Cassidy", and others, is undeterred and going all out to show her support for her team from Holland. Eden has offered to provide an intimate blowing of anatomical vuvuzelas of all her Twitter followers if the Netherlands wins the World Cup.

Prior to the announcement, Eden had about 4K followers. Afterward, enthusiasm for the Dutch soccer team exploded and Eden's Twitter account jumped to more than 100,000 followers. Of course, anyone can see Eden's offer is a simple publicity stunt. Imagine that.

However, at the same time, more interest in the outcome has emerged. Eden promises to publish details on how to collect the vuvuzela blow on her Twitter page tomorrow. (more....)
