ODDITY: This Frog Will Predict Lottery Numbers, No Kidding

When Tongsai Boommrungsai, a 52-year-old married woman from Roi-Et in Thailand, spotted a frog in her garden holding a young chick in its mouth, she stared straight into the frogs protruding eyes and demanded that she drop it. The frog did, was immediately named Nong Oui and became part of the family.

She was given a free hop of the house and local villagers would often call in. When they started seeing numbers on the stretched skin of Nong Oui’s stomach they placed money on the lottery. For the next 10 consecutive lottery draws she produced winning two and three digit numbers and a legend was born.
