Doomsday theorists were left scratching their heads again recently when another widely publicised world-ending prophecy failed to materialise.
Observers were given very little notice for the most recent 'Rapture' warning when German fashion tosser Karl Lagerfeld ill-advisedly called British singing sensation Adele 'eine grossen frauline' (a fat bird).
The weirdo's comment would have been treated as merely cruel by many however, unknown to the Teutonic stick insect, the London-born songstress was due to perform at the recent Grammy awards.
The world then held its collective breath as 'the fat lady' sang only to wake up the following morning to business as usual.
"This simply proves once again that people in the fashion industry know absolutely nothing about anything" said the first person we asked about it.
More recently, Organisers tempted fate again when Adele gave a sensational performance at the BRIT awards but controversially cut her acceptance speech short to be 'on the safe side'.
A carefully chosen James Corden hosted the star-studded event because he has been avoiding pies lately and isn't a lady.
