Psychic Monkey to Predict Outcome of New Hampshire Primary

January 9th, 2012 § 0 comments

Tomorrow is the New Hampshire Republican primary. The polls and the pundits have been anticipating a win for Romney, but who knows, politics can be a difficult business to predict.

And for that reason, the New York Daily News decided to look beyond the mainstream commentators to see what a true oracle has to say.

They visited the Staten Island Zoo in order to meet with Grandpa, the black-handed spider monkey who has been credited with correctly predicting outcomes for the US Open and the Super Bowl.

Bananas are Grandpa’s divination tool of choice. In this case, each one represents a particular candidate in the race.

They’re all laid out in a row, under a light covering of hay. Then Grandpa sets to work. Whichever banana he chooses to eat is his projected winner.

Unfortunately, the news report below is nothing but a teaser, and we won’t know who Grandpa chose until sometime later today.

I’ll try to keep on top of the story and will report back tomorrow with an update. If for some reason that’s not possible, I apologize in advance.

But either way, we’ll know who the winner is soon enough.
