The sensational animal psychic, Paul the Octopus, made waves when he correctly predicted who would win in the World Cup. After his death, many attempts have been made to replace the octopus.
Just recently, a 40-year-old spider monkey named Grandpa, made a prediction of who will win the contested New Hampshire primary. His unlikely pick was Newt Gingrich. It is actually not the usual pick based on polling and common sense. However, it made other competitors pause and think.
It was announced by NY Daily News last week that it is partnering with Grandpa’s home, the Staten Island Zoo, in conducting the prediction.
The prediction was done in pretty much the same way as Paul the Octopus predicted the winner of the World Cup. All names of candidates were written on various bananas and were then scattered everywhere in the hay. As can be seen in the footage, Grandpa did not waste time in choosing a banana and devoured quickly the one with the name Gingrich.
His predictions were interpreted after he ate Santorum second, followed by Perry third, and Jon Hunstman for fourth. It was, in fact, a surprise that he did not even include the Romney banana. It is this player who is most likely to win. However, no one knows exactly what is going to happen. All people can do now is to anticipate the game and see if the spider monkey can actually beat Paul the Octopus’ performance.
People are wondering about the Ron Paul banana and why it was not chosen. They even wonder if it was even included in the experiment.
