Tuesday’s disastrous Brazil-Germany FIFA2014 World Cup futbol match, which ended in Germany whipping the host country 7-1, has saddened the nation (photo.) And on Wednesday, Brazil’s soccer fans were struggling to understand what exactly went wrong.
We analyzed press and social media reactions and translated from the Portuguese to bring you their Pocho Ocho top reasons for Brazil’s FAIL:
8. Blame it on the bossa nova, with its magic spell.
7. All those pesky Hitler clones on the Brazil team let Germany win.
6. Alemania? We thought we were playing Ally McBeal!
YouTuber Dan Newbie plays bottles, pans, pots and salt shakers, overdubs his nalgas off, and runs through a bunch of Brazil-oriented tunes, the better to World Cup you with, my dear.

What the heck is going on in Brazil? Two crop circles in one day?
Two crop circles have appeared near the town of Ipuaçu in the state of Santa Catarina, Brazil. Local UFO researchers are convinced they are not man-made and have put up a $20,000 reward for anyone who can prove they faked them.
This is what we learned on the Internet yesterday: In Brazil (they call it Brasil), tractor trailer drivers make their trucks dance, dance so hard that they break the wing. Peep this compilation of some of the wildest examples — As Quebra de Asa Mais Bruta — to see what we mean.

Brasil sends us the multi-award-winning O Plantador de Quiabos (the okra planter) in Portuguese with English subtitles and from San Francisco’s Mission District comes a documentary that introduces us to the family behind La Bicicleta Vieja (the old bicycle), Spanish with English subtitles.
