Not Long 4 This World Alert:
Cher battles deadly disease

Publication: National Enquirer
Date: 12 Apr. 2010

Anyone who was famous before I graduated from high school gets the Hey Old Timer label, and Cher certainly qualifies. The Flagship wants us to know that she is battling a deadly disease. I don't know which one because I refuse to read the stories on principle.

I now realize that the "deadly disease" headline is the lowest level of Not Long 4 This World Alert that the tabloids have. The flu counts as a deadly disease, especially the H1N1 strain, but the vast majority of people who contract it survive. Even so, Cher gets added to the growing list of people who are allegedly at death's door, a list that includes not one person who has actually died yet three months into 2010.

Maybe it's the Horrible Hair disease. That can be pretty deadly.

They say when the world comes to an end, the only creatures remaining will be cockroaches and Cher. And I believe it.
