Scientists Predict New Ice Age

Comet McNaught caused by global warming

Written by Rusty Pipes
January 12, 2007


Brazier: Scientists confirm that the blazing hot tail of Comet McNaught will seen clearly this evening across the Western sky and that it actually is an accumulation of hair and underarm spray from America, mixed with bovine flatulence and French body odor. While many thought the end of the world would come someday, few realized it would be shortly after the Patriots smash the Chargers into the turf this Sunday.

Pieces of the hoary ice ball are expected to flake off and pepper the earth in an icy rain from heaven and trigger a global change in the weather that could last a thousand years. The same scientists that predicted the hazards of global warming now blame mankind for this impending disaster and for the new ice age that is expected to be “kindled” by this cosmic event.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

If that's what it takes, I reckon we're safe for a good long time.

PS. I loved Ernie Banks and Ron Santo. Sorry they never got a ring. Go Cubbies!

Blackberry has it right, we can count on the Scrubs to keep the world from ending for the forseeable future.

That's pretty good. However I'm very sensitive to knocks on the Chargers as Philip Rivers is my #1 guy.....although I agree the Pats will be a huge challenge for him.

Lets see,,, America (USA), bovine (Bovia), French (France), Patriots (Massataxes),
Chargers (Loopy Diego). Sounds like a U.N. plot to me.
