Headline Prophet
« on: September 15, 2008, 06:33:57 PM »
We all know how good Roger is at devising crossword clues, but some of us have more refined talents.
I, for example, am a prophet. I prophesy that Andy Murray will win Wimbledon.
But there's more.
I prophesy that the headline in a national newspaper will be "AM for PM?"
Any budding prophets dare to try to match that?

This is an interesting idea which we should introduce on December 31st----we all make predictions for 2009 and see who comes up trumps.
As for your two prophecies, Fyodor, I predict they're both wrong.

Too much doom and gloom.

Prophets are definitely down this week.

Yes, indeed - bravo, Peepsie!  ;D

Knew you wouldn't let us down. Though my prediction was you'd come up with "Forget the Futures market - there's no prophet in it." - close, but no cigar, and yours was better.
I apologise, in advance.

You don't hear of too many prophets winning the Lottery, do you?

Well, if they were genuine prophets, they would know they were going to win the lottery and when, so they would know not to let anyone know they were prophets.

Yes, it took me a whole month to come up with that.

You could have used the time more prophetably.
