This is the time when many so-called pundits reveal their predictions for the New Year. Well, he may not be a pundit, but here's what News 8's "pun-ster," Larry Himmel thinks will happen in 2012.
Just days into the New Year,
Tell me how does it feel?
The time's flying so quickly
It's almost unreal.
The year's, rolling by faster
Than a bullet train carriage
Almost as fleeting
As a Kardashian marriage.
But just stop for a moment
And let me delve.
Into some fearless predictions
For the year 2012.
I predict that reality TV's
Next big hit will be
The lives of the Real
Housewives of Santee.
I predict that the Aztec baseball team
Coached by Tony Gywnn
Will switch conferences to the NL West
Where they've got a chance to win.
And the new name for the stadium
I predict with much aplomb
Will be Snapdragon, Jack Murphy,
Syquan, Tilted Kilt, Hooters at Qualcomm.
And between democrats and republicans
I predict solidarity will grow
When some of our current politicians
Meet in their next life down below.
I predict that the fed will tighten
And then start unraveling.
The stock market will rebound
Then get called for travelling.
I predict there will be a 5g phone
Then the 6g that's a steal.
You'll them free at Mickey D's
With every Happy Meal.
I predict some nut will predict
The world is going to end.
For those who follow his path
He'll blame faulty math for being wrong again.
As twitter replaces e-mail
And my peeps all start to tweet
And everyone posts on Facebook
I predict I'll be obsolete.
But I predict that I will still be here
Hope this job never ends
Although if I get much older
I'll be sponsored by Depends.
Of all the things that I predict
I know one that will come to pass.
No matter what happens in this year
It's got to be better than the last.
