0 is for Octopus

...or for zero goals scored in a soccer game.

German octopus Paul correctly picks the winner of German soccer matches at the World Cup in South Africa. Yesterday, he correctly picked out Spain. And so Spain won and moves on to the final, while Germany will play Uruguay for place 3.

Now German fans are clamoring for a "revenge grilling of oracle octopus." Turns out we're not a superstitious nation after all.
