The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow Alert™:
All the end of 2010 prophecies go bust.

Publication: Sun
Date: 6 December 2010

The Sun published a list of stuff that was slated to happen before the end of the year in an issue that was on the stands this last Thanksgiving. All the predictions were long shots and they didn't get a single one right. Here's the list.

  • William visits the White House as king (no visit, not king yet)
  • Oprah will marry (oh, no she din't)
  • Hillary divorces Bill (it's an old stand-by, but it still hasn't happened)
  • Billy Graham reveals God's plan for mankind. (My good pal Padre Mickey says that all Christian preachers have revealed God's plan for mankind, but the prophecy made it sound like Billy was going to iron out the details.)
So, there we are, 0 for 4 this time around and 0 for crying out loud for the entire year. Who would keep paying attention to these predictions when they can go an entire year without getting anything right?

Well, hypothetical question asker, I would. It is the task I have set for myself and the Sun was nice enough to put more prophecies on the cover this week with specific dates, so I'll print them here on the blog and keep track of when they are going to take place.

I prefer the (late) octopus who successfully called the outcome of some sort of sports games.
