two cockroaches race to u.s. presidency

leave a comment »

This presidential race was no contest: John McCain sped to the finish while Barack Obama was reluctant to leave the starting point. Of course there’s no guarantee giant Madagascar hissing cockroaches will predict the real result in November. The roach race Thursday was part of the New Jersey Pest Management Association’s annual clinic and trade show. Organizers liken the race’s prediction success to that of Punxsutawney Phil on Groundhog Day, when lore says the rodent can predict how long winter weather will last depending on whether he sees his shadow.
