News, but not the serious kind
Then when I was six, we went to a zoo…
Blog Guy, I’m starting to get scared about this Apocalypse thing you keep writing about. A few days ago it was people trying to auction off embalming tools used on Elvis Presley. What next? Can the signs get any worse than that?
Indeed they can, and they have.
Oh my God! There’s another sign? What have you seen now? Don’t sugar-coat it!
I just saw this: “Teen heartthrob Justin Bieber to write memoir.”
It IS odd that a 16-year-old kid is publishing a memoir, but how is that a sign of the Apocalypse?
The book comes out in October.
It’s already August. A really well-written, accurate, introspective memoir takes at least four months, not two months like this one.
Trust me, if anyone pays for a “memoir” of a 16-year-old boy’s life, it will be the end of civilization as we know it.
I guess you’re right. Speaking of the Apocalypse, I’ve noticed your readers sometimes cite the writings of Nostradamus, the 16th century prophet who predicted the future with amazing accuracy, but you never quote him yourself. Why don’t you invoke his prophecies here more often?
I can’t. I have my reasons. Let’s leave it at that.
No! As a longtime reader, I demand to know what’s going on!
You’ll be very sorry.
Do you want me to go to your boss, Blog Guy?
No, don’t do that. Okay, my blog is….
Uh-oh! No, wait! Don’t say it! Please!
…a non-prophet organization….
