Fiona The Hippo Predicted The Kansas City Chiefs To Win This Year's Super Bowl–By Vomiting On Them

Trending

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.
