…the quintessential flaw with any human invention is that humans are the inventors.
Now that the tournament is over, it’s time to reflect on it – through a series of timely parodies of the motivational poster theme.

Prophecies regarding human behavior are only fulfilled once they are believed.
Did you see what just happened today in South Africa? Spain, an underdog after only 13 World Cup appearances, defeated The Netherlands for the championship win. So how did Spain get to a final in the first place? It’s because they beat Germany 1-0 after Germany beat Argentina 4-0, England 4-1 and Australia 4-0. How did this upset happen? Because of raw Spanish skill? Please. Spain beat Germany because of belief in a prediction by an allegedly “psychic” Octopus.
