Barak Obama only has 12 more months to save the world from the year 2013. Unless the name gets changed to 2012b or even 2014 we could all be doomed.
That is because a year called 2013 can only lead to unimagined bad luck. Tristodecaphobes all over the world are begging him not to let the year 2013 happen.
"Nothing will go right in a year called 2013" Said a Tristadecaphobe called Peter. "I can imagine Tsunamis, and more financial collapse than we've already got, and ...I can't think what else but its all gonna be bad".
Boris Johnson in Great Britain has been demonstrating for the past two years to try to get the Year 2013 banned to no effect. David Cameron apparently thinks the number 13 is beautiful. So it won't be banned in Britain, but there is still a chance for America.
"If Barack Obama could put it in his presidential campaign, I can guarantee that he would win. I'd vote for him and so would all my fellow tristodecaphobes." Said Pete.
And so in Election year in America, the gauntlet has been thrown down. Ban the year 2013 or lose votes.
I hope the best tristodecaphobe wins. Otherwise we're all doomed...possibly.
