Paul the octopus is currently on the top of hate-list of the Germans after his prediction of Germany's loss at FIFA World Cup semifinals proved right. Bitter fans are scouring the Internet for octopus recipes, Der Spiegel reports.

“Hey Frank,” said one customer in a Berlin restaurant as the game ended, “I could do with some octopus right now. You have any back in the kitchen?” The chef shook his head. “They were sold out,” he said.

German fans discussed octopus recipes Twitter and Facebook accounts. “Grill the octopus oracle. Throw Paul in the saucepan,” tweeted one. “Into the deep fryer!” agreed another.

Some posts however suggested that Paul should be put to better use, for example, currency movements for the government.
