Hey Trenders! Welcome to Top Trending Topics, where we give you an inside look on what’s being most talked about online.
Today, people are talking about Psychic Octopus. Paul the Octopus, which shot to fame when he predicted that Spain will win over Germany in the semi-finals of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, died of natural causes today in his habitat at the Sea Life Center in Germany. In case you didn’t know, Paul gained the ire of a lot of German fans during the course of the World Cup (they called in for the Octopus to be cooked and eaten) and many people remained skeptical of his abilities. His remains will be cremated soon but his final resting place is yet to be determined by Sea Life Center authorities.
Next, people are talking about #uwascooluntil- yet another hashtag tweet with comical grammer. Tweeters are sharing the writings on the wall or things that disappointed them about the person they thought was perfect for them.
And finally today, people are talking about Ballon, short for “Ballon d’Or” or “Golden Ball” in English. It refers to the European Footballer of the Year Award whose current title holder is FC Barcelona’s Lionel Messi. Today, FIFA announced their shortlist for the said award, as well as for the World Coach of the Year title and other annual awards. The winners will be awarded in January in Zurich, Germany.
