Of course those are only my predictions…
I mean, I could be wrong. But I have been right in the past… twice. So with my magical predictions, I personally will single-handedly “win the future”. Here on Scenic Route Snapshots, I have accurately predicted that Jenny Slate would not be fired from Saturday Night Live after she accidently slipped the f-word on her very first skit back in 2009 (making me the first person on the Internet to proclaim it), as well as the fact that Ali Fedotowsky on The Bachelorette would chose Roberto after watching the very first episode in 2010. Now in attempt to be awesome (yet risk all credibility as a writer/fake fortune teller), I will explain why the title of this post has to be true.
1) Will Ferrell will replace Steve Carell on The Office: Everyone knows that Steve Carell is leaving The Office, but for months everyone has been speculating who could fill his shoes. Will Ferrell will be perfect for the role because he plays a great idiot but in more of a “man beast” sort of way, so as not to generically mimic Steve Carell’s “jerk with a heart” type of fool. As this article explains, Steve Carell is actually leaving The Office four episodes before the season finale and Will Ferrell will be the “temp” replacement. But, I’m sure if test audiences and critics like Will as the new boss, they’ll keep him around and he will enjoy a resurgence in his comedy career. Done.
2) Sarah Palin Will Run for President in 2012: She’s been vague and coy on the issue when asked in public interviews as to whether or not she seriously plans to run for President, but that’s just because she’s wisely testing the waters. Was Sarah Palin’s Alaska part of her plan to test half of America’s support? You betcha. Her show was a hit and she was able to see that she definitely has a major following. If she wasn’t going to run for President, she would have said so by now. Done.
3) Michelle Dugger Will Try to Have Another Baby So The Show Will Have to Be Changed To 20 Kids and Counting: On the season premiere last week of 19 Kids and Counting, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar explained that their newest baby, Josie Brooklyn Duggar, has now recovered from her digestive problems. Now that they’ve seen that Kid #19 is going to be okay, why wouldn’t they go for #20? At this point, people should not be surprised every time Michelle Duggar gets pregnant again. That’s the norm for the Duggars. So until they tell us they physically can’t have anymore children (whether naturally or because one of them chooses to have “the surgery”), we must always assume that another Duggar is on the way. Done.
If, in the future you are reading this and by some strange twist of fate I’m wrong about any of these three situations, call me out on my erroneous predictions by leaving a comment. I’ll man up to my mistakes.
