Popcorn Park Zoo

After Teddy the talking porcupine correctly predicted the winner of the 2012 Super Bowl, we decided never to scoff at a fortune-telling animal again. So, when we heard that a clairvoyant camel had peered into the future and determined the winner of this year’s game, we were all ears.

 According to the handlers of Princess, a 26-year-old Bactrian camel who lives at Popcorn Park Zoo in Lacey Township, New Jersey, the animal has an uncanny record of success guessing Super Bowl winners. This year, she picked the Baltimore Ravens to win.

“Over seven years she’s only lost once,” said John Bergmann, the zoo’s general manager. “Last year, she picked the Giants to win and they won. I think she has a record of 6 and 1.”

But before you place a large wager based on Princess’ psychic abilities, you should know that her predictions seem to be based on a love of graham crackers.

“In one palm we write down with one of these magic markers the 49ers, and on the other, the Ravens. We cover them with graham cracker so she can’t see. Whichever she chooses to eat first is her pick,” explained Bergmann.

Okay, so, her method isn’t exactly scientific, but it’s good enough for us. Come on, Princess. We’re counting on you!

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                    Cointoss,

                    thanks, I guess I should pay more attention to the bactrian camel from my own state,

                    not sure what bactrian means, is that a breed type ?
