Iran vs the Octopus
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says Paul, the World Cup predicting Octopus, represents all that is wrong with the western world. "Those who believe in this type of thing cannot be the leaders of the global nations that aspire, like Iran, to human perfection, basing themselves in the love of all sacred values," he said during a speech in Tehran, accusing Paul of "spreading Western propaganda and superstition.” Paul was mentioned on a number of occasions during that speech in Tehran over the weekend. Paul the Octopus recently became an international celebrity after correctly predicting the outcome of all German World Cup matches.
