Russian Roulette Sunday: There Is No Such Thing As A Psychic Octopus

What is it about the name Paul? Half the world becomes convinced that an octopus is psychic and half of Paul Gascoigne thinks that a murderer wants to do a spot of fishing.

7 Reasons I Shouldn’t Do A Mexican Wave In My Living Room
