Every now and then Sister Veronica gets a letter like this one that she received last week:
Dear Sister Veronica,
Can you believe it has been 3 years and 1 day since your last (and, ironically, first) “Dear Sister Veronica” bit at the Cow? I’ve been sipping Rasputin beer and talking about you with my pal, Joey. And we’re both wondering how’s come you haven’t been seen at the Reverend’s in a while, and more importantly, how come you haven’t show us your magnificent udders yet? Neither of us is good with astrology, but both of us agree that a peep show is DEFINITELY in the cards.
Your Biggest Fans,
Atlas C. and Joey P.
Mostly she just rolls her eyes and resumes application of nail polish to her toes, but this time she pointed out that (speaking of ‘things on the cards’) we never did revisit the predictions she made in 2007 for major events of that year. And dammit, it looks like she’s right! Somehow I completely overlooked my promise to see just how well she did with her clairvoyant powers. If you don’t recall her forecasts (such as an earthquake in Peru and the winner of the 2007 Academy Awards) you can refresh your memory here.
Looking back at 2007 it seems that Sister Veronica’s crystal ball is sporting an astonishing 100% success rate. If you want to check her accuracy, Wikipedia lists some of the important events of 2007 here. Sister V managed to score an incredible five direct hits out of five specific predictions WELL BEFORE THEY HAPPENED!! (plus she made two bonus predictions for 2008 which I think you’ll agree are more than a little uncanny!) Sylvia Browne, it’s time for you to hang up your hat and call it a day.
Now that’s what we call persuasive evidence of psychic ability!
