Finally, our predictions for the new year!

“In 2011, the economy will get so bad that Oprah will change the name of her network from ‘OWN’ to ‘RENT.’ Mattel will release ‘Recession Barbie,’ complete with foreclosure papers on her Malibu Dream House. And when you ask her ‘Where’s Ken?’ she sobs. The Winklevoss Twins will sue Mattel claiming that they thought of ‘Recession Barbie’ first. A crafty New Yorker will invent and sell a beverage called ‘Hot Tranny Mess’ that combines caffeine, salt, high fructose corn syrup, and trans fat. Upon hearing the news, Mayor Bloomberg will faint and fall, ironically, into a snow bank.” Comment

Finally, our predictions for the new year!

A new year is upon us. In the grand old tradition, we asked borough luminaries to make some predictions for the next 12 months, and threw in some of our own for good measure. Some of these you can actually expect to happen, others are, well, fun guess work. So if any come to fruition, remember, you heard it here first! Comment
