What octopus, and where is Oberhausen? *looks strangely at both of you* lol...And I have an uncle named Paul, though I doubt that'd be him. =P

Is Paul related to you (assuming H-M at least) If he's an animal, is he your pet?

If he's an inanimate object, is he made from (insert LTPF list of materials)

Paul -- not your uncle -- is a fellow octopus who lives in Oberhausen, Germany, source for many joys and sorrows during the last World Cup. What world cup? Well, the football one, of course :=)
Who remains in history for Spain, Diego Forlan, the vuvuzelas -- buisines, I'd call them, for our friend Woodworm -- and, of course, Paul the octopus

What octopus, and where is Oberhausen? *looks strangely at both of you* lol...And I have an uncle named Paul, though I doubt that'd be him. =P I honestly have no idea what he's talking about ...

Is Paul related to you (assuming H-M at least) no If he's an animal, is he your pet?

If he's an inanimate object, is he made from (insert LTPF list of materials) the rest I won't answer because Paul is human

Did you do it? Did this bring you: money? social recognition? Did you pass a test?

Other people relevant (besides you and Paul)? If so: H? A? M?

Animals relevant? Is this a true story?

Did Paul directly assist you in doing it? Did he do something that allowed it to be done? Did he give you something that allowed it to be done? Did you receive anything because of it? Did Paul receive anything because of it? Did someone else receive something because of it? Is Paul's name relevant, besides his being HM?

RECAP:

I couldn't have posted a puzzle on the LTPF without Paul Sloane having created it first. However, one detail about the puzzle is needed for a complete solution.
