London - (Bad Ass Mess): Paranormal soothsaying website Old Whores Almanack 2008 has risen to the challenge thrown down by the International Skeptics Society to predict an Armageddon-like disaster to hit the UK on New Year's Day 2008.
"And what's more we're sticking our necks out this time to claim the £1 million prize for the most deadly prediction gleaned solely from interpreting the astrology of fate," the website's CEO Mystic Sadie said today.
The site has a long hystery of almost getting it right.
But it is now backing all its hunches after installing new astrology software that compares the star charts of over one million public figures' with a recently deciphered encryption code hidden in the Book of Revelation.
However this cuts no ice with Barry Williams, executive officer of the Society's Australian branch.
"January 1st 2008 to be the apocalyptic disaster day predicted in the Bible? Don't make me laugh!" Williams guffawed in an interview today.
"For over 30 years we've tested more than 1000 people who claimed to be able to predict specific events after offering up a £1 million bounty.
"Needless to say we've never once had to fork out.
"Call me a cynical old bugger. We know they are all frauds. And that includes this pathetic attempt by Old Whores Almanack 2008! Who the hell are they anyway?"
Meanwhile at the Strawberry Hill, South London orifices of the Old Whores' website a real party atmosphere prevails as top astrologers prepare to unveil their top January 1st 2008 claims.
