Well That Settles It....
Princess, the star of New Jersey's Popcorn Park Zoo, has correctly picked the winner of five of the last six Super Bowls. She went 14 and 6 predicting regular season and playoff games this year, and has a lifetime record of 88-51.
Her pick this year: The New York Giants.
The Bactrian camel's prognostication skills flow from her love of graham crackers. Zoo general manager John Bergmann places a cracker and writes the name of the competing teams on each hand. Whichever hand Princess nibbles from is her pick. On Wednesday, she made her pick with no hesitation at all, predicting bad news for Bill Belichick, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, even though the Las Vegas oddsmakers have New England favored by about 3 points.
Her only miscue in the big game was picking the Indianapolis Colts over the New Orleans Saints two years ago, indicating that even camels know it's generally risky to go against Peyton Manning.

Well, she has a better record picking winners this year than Terry Bradshaw.
But then I have never seen Terry Bradshaw eat Graham crackers. I mean, he is something of a cracker, but not that kind. He did got to LSU, didn't he?
Giants 24 - Patriots 17

Hello? That camel is from New Jersey! Pick anybody other than the Giants and she'd be buried with Jimmy Hoffa.
Giants, by a camel's whisker.

The NJ Camels... sounds like a great name for a football team.

A camel playing the odds?? Who'da thunk it?
As for picking the next GOP candidate . . . think a stuffed marmoset would do better than a Honey Badger?? LOL!

"Stuffed Marmoset Picks GOP Presidential Nominee."
Thank heavens someone's going to. I just wish he'd get on with it.
