The other day as I was waiting with my kohlrabi to check out of the grocery line, I came across this colorful front-page headline in The Sun:
Exactly what about Nostradamus’ prophecies for Summer 2012 is forbidden?
Is Nostradamus himself forbidden? Well, golly, it’s not like he’s going to move anywhere, being dead and all.
Is it forbidden for you to read Nostradamus’ prophecies? Er, no. All of Nostradamus’ quatrains (four-line poems, folks) — are available for you to read right here.
Maybe they’re just forbidden during the Summer of 2012. If so, then you should check back this time next month and see if the above link works. A broken link? It must be a conspiracy? No broken link = nothing “forbidden.”
I just can’t figure out what’s forbidden here. If you know the answer to this riddle, let me know. There surely must be an answer; our newspapers never lie to us.
