Predictions Galore!

Doesn't it seem like everyone you turn there are [insert pompously loud musical introduction]:

PREDICTIONS FOR 2008! (echo, echo, echo...)

So why shouldn't we make some here?

Thus far, these are my predictions for the coming year:

1. A popular blogger will be elected president of the United States thanks to a massive write-in campaign. Unfortunately, it will be discovered that she is really a 17-year-old masquerading as a 40-something dude who writes terrible, as-yet-unpublished romantic comedies. The ironies abound and the country delights in the foible.

2. YouTube will endorse a spinoff website -- BoobTube. Its popularity will surpass that of all Internet sites to date and will cause the World Wide Web to crash for several days, resulting in depressed writers everywhere wandering around aimlessly and muttering: "Must. Leave. Comments." The only ones profiting will be YouTube and the makers of Paxil.

3. The question "If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around, does it make a sound?" will be answered by a Tibetan monk. He will then lose faith and record a hip-hop album. By the end of the year, he'll return to his religion a wiser person.

Your turn...

Sorry, I'm in a gloomy mood today. Your predictions are quite funny, though.
I only hope the tree that falls will not be me - but if it is heard by a Tibetian monk....does it mean I'm get to Tibet this year?

I worry that even a 17-year-old blogger might end up being better presidential material than one of the candidates I've been watching. And I can picture BoobTube being a huge hit -- and surely Paxil would not be the only pharmaceutical with rising shares. I like the idea of a Tibetan monk doing a hip-hop album, too. Who knows? It could happen!

I predict I will be visiting your blog again tomorrow and leaving a funny post. Let's see if it comes true.

(Funny predictions, Btw!)

My crystal ball tells me that Paris Hilton will become a nun, Britney Spears will start wearing knickers and President Bush will have a sex change.

I'd love to go to Tibet, too. Our friend just proposed to his girlfriend there! Now THAT'S dang cool!

(She said yes!)



A 17-year-old blogger could definitely run this country. I personally like NONE of the candidates.

Can you say: "Kill the two party system"? :)

I, too, like a Tibetan monk hip hop artist. Hey! Let's do a post where everyone comes up with song titles for this mysterious dude to sing!



I'm still waiting to see if your prediction will come true... oooo... I hope so!



I think that the latter of your predictions has more of a chance, unfortunately, of happening than the first two!

Correction. Seventeen year olds rarely blog. More likely a thirteen year old on Facebook.

Excellent point. As you can tell, I don't have teens yet! :)
