The psychic animals are back: Goat gets her chance

It’s been a while. They’ve not really gone away but just so you don’t forget that the media considers this “news”, here ya go.

No kidding – Psychic goat picked out result of Plymouth Argyle’s clash with Cheltenham | Plymouth Herald.

PREDICTING the outcome of Plymouth Argyle’s clash with Cheltenham on Saturday was probably not a difficult task given the Pilgrim’s recent form.

But it seems even a goat was able to spot the result a mile off – at least a goat with fortune-telling powers and a decent appetite.

One-year-old Pip, who lives at Cotswold Farm Park in Cheltenham, picked out the correct result ahead of the game – and will now be predicting how England fare at this summer’s World Cup in Brazil.

She picks from three bowls to eat from. The one she choses, team A, B or draw, is the claimed outcome.

It looks like her hit rate is within the realm of chance.

Someone please explain to me ANY, I mean ANY method by which this would work. Nope, there isn’t any. It’s random. And it’s not news. I’m making this a “no follow” link. Please don’t click on it.

    “Someone please explain to me ANY, I mean ANY method by which this would work.” Yeah, the concept of psychic goats is ridiculous. Obviously the person presenting the bowls is psychic. See link to en.wikipedia.org
