As we approach the end of 2007, Nostadamus - The Spoof's resident psychic - offers his view of 2008 in typical quatrains.
In Canada was released the iPhone,
Presidential promise was shown,
The asteroid Mars did avoid,
And Pakistan's election was enjoyed.
Eclipsed were the moon and sun,
After the Super Bowl was won.
In the month of Valentine, too,
The 80th Oscars were due.
The country of Putin will face
Its next vital political race.
WrestleMania will be twenty four,
And the loser will be on the floor.
Corporate Manslaughter arrives in the UK,
With Corporate Homicide, that cliché!
Ubuntu, the variant of Linux code,
Will have Long Term Support that users are owed.
Eurovision was a disaster once more,
Unlike Indiana Jones IV.
A race for the other Indy,
The -anapolis kind, will be very windy.
Euro 2008 literally kicks off,
Group D drawn by Dino Zoff.
Golf will again be open in the US,
To players it will cause much stress.
Eggs Benedict the XIV, the Pope,
Will give World Youth Day hope.
Microsoft will lose Bill Gates,
They say it's their "updates".
The Olympics will begin in Beijing,
The Spoof will cover everything.
The athletes failing drug tests,
And beating world bests.
The tenth Reach the Beach Relay
Is fun for all to play.
To run are 204 miles,
It will vanish smiles.
It is the month of Halloween,
Only one thing does that mean:
Another Saw film - number five,
Where people don't stay alive.
A President will be unveiled
Will Bush's plans be derailed?
Will it be Hillary, the female,
Or is it Obama we'll hail?
Burj Dubai will be the tallest ever
Building built, isn't that clever?
Plus the end of another year,
When I'll make more predictions here.
