Fiona, the adorable 3-year-old Nile hippopotamus from the Cincinnati Zoo, was tasked with predicting the winning team at the Super Bowl.

Unfortunately, zookeepers tried to make her choose between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers just after she had her lunch.


On Thursday afternoon, Fiona was placed in front of two "enrichment items," each marked with the respective team logos.

The animal handlers waited to see which one the 1,200-pound hippo would press with her snout to indicate the champions.

The hippo paused, slowly unhinged her jaw and vomited her freshly chomped veggies on top of the Kansas City logo.

What does this exactly mean for the Chiefs?

Only Fiona knows.

But based on the upchuck, 49ers fans took liberties and bet in favor of their team.





Or did this indicate a Chiefs victory?





Maybe this was her way of saying "leave me out of it."

Fiona was born prematurely on January 24, 2017 and has been a celebrity ever since.

The beloved Nile hippopotamus was the first of her species to be scanned through the womb on ultrasound and the first to be born at the institution in 75 years.


Fiona is known to have a 50% accuracy rate with her predictions so far.

In 2018, she prophesied a Philadelphia Eagles victory against the New England Patriots, but inaccurately bet against the Pats and went with the Los Angeles Rams, in 2019.

Super Bowl LIV will take place on Sunday, February 2, 2020 and televised by FOX.

Kickoff starts at 6:30 p.m. EST at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.

Whatever Fiona was thinking, it certainly did not smell like team spirit.

Being woken up suddenly is not very good for our health.

Especially for the elderly, it's not something to make a habit of. Sleep interruption can increase blood pressure, cause a worsened self image, and cause a day filled with irritation and confusion.

No one wants to be woken up, but there are definitely some reasons for being woken up that are worse than your alarm clock.

We went to Ask Reddit to find out some of the worst reasons people have been woken up.

People have a habit of excusing crap behavior - honestly because it's often easier in the short term. Long term = flaming dumpster fire.

We live in a time where we are critically re-examining how we pay workers. After a two-year-long pandemic where some low-income and "unskilled" jobs were deemed "essential," we now must put our money where our mouth is.

For too long in the world have incredibly important jobs been overlooked or else outright maligned. Teachers in the USA make some of the least money, career-wise, and have some of the hardest jobs. Dancers pay to put their bodies through hell with no guarantee of paid work after training.

What causes a small town to die?

Honestly, there can be quite a few factors, but perhaps the biggest one is that small towns often lack the upward mobility opportunities that are more available in urban areas.

As a result, many towns around the United States for instance have lost tens of millions of people as their populations seek jobs and opportunities elsewhere.

And what remains of these places can be pretty sketchy.

People told us more after Redditor RadicalizedSnackWrap asked the online community,

"What's a super sketchy US city that we never hear about?"
