The TFM writing staff was asked, “What do you think will happen in 2013?” Here are their responses.
Honestly I didn’t think past 2012, because I had assumed the world was going to end this past December, so I really haven’t given the future much thought. Usually I’d be practical and take some educated guesses about what the future holds based on what I have read and heard. But, because of what I thought was the world’s impending doom, I haven’t read anything other than the Bible and porno mags I had stocked up in my basement in case I was left behind after the Rapture. So because of that, I’ll have to take some wild shots in the dark here.
1. The first quarter of the Alabama-Notre Dame game will be close, Notre Dame might even be leading at the end of it, which will cause Notre Dame fans to shout and tweet with smarmy delight, “SEE!?! GUESS IT’S NOT GONNA BE SUCH A BLOW OUT AFTER ALL!”
Alabama will then spend the next three quarters doing to Notre Dame what Nick Saban does to the souls of the damned who enter his dark realm after death; rip off their heads and shit down their bleeding neck holes. After that, Notre Dame fans will shout and tweet things like, “OH, SORRY OUR PLAYERS WERE TOO BUSY GETTING A GOOD EDUCATION INSTEAD OF TRAINING FOR FOOTBALL ALL DAY! MUST BE NICE TO NOT HAVE TO GO TO CLASS!”, and, “YOU KNOW WHAT’S BETTER THAN HAVING A TROPHY??? HAVING A DIPLOMA!!!”
Fuck you, Notre Dame fans.
2. Super porn will be invented. I don’t know what it is. I don’t know how they’ll do it. All I know is it will force everyone to rethink the way penises go into vaginas and mouths and b-holes on camera. Inevitably amateurs will attempt copycat this super porn, leading to several very public, very horrific deaths. This in turn will result in public outcry, a congressional inquiry, and the most semen related testimony in Washington since the Clinton years.
Look for a super porn star to testify before a congressional committee and avoid a serious question by stating, “Like I’ve said earlier, I’m not going to go into my ass, or talk about my ass.”
3. None of my favorite sports teams will win a championship. None.
4. There will be an assault weapons ban in the U.S., but then a tribe of sasquatches will be discovered in Oregon, feasting on the remains of Bear Grylls and a team of hikers testing out new Nike outdoor gear. That ban will then be quickly lifted, and swift, righteous death will be brought upon those terrifying, bloodthirsty man-apes.
Over the next few years more sasquatches will be discovered living in the caverns of the Pacific Northwest. Eventually, we will take those caverns from them, and strip the caves of their ample resources, and many sasquatches will die off from newly introduced diseases, such as herpes (contracted from super porn actors looking to expand into the sasquatch fetish market). Then, we will move the sasquatches to new, smaller, more desolate caverns, and begin naming our sports teams after them while the sasquatches open casinos deep underground. One day, sasquatches will be fully assimilated into American society, we will apologize profusely for our sins against them, and the football team the Washington Hair Faces will have to change their name for the second time in fifty years.
Most predictions are complete bullshit, but if you make up enough shit, some of it’s bound to come true…eventually. If none of this shit happens in 2013, then it will become part of the archaeological record. I will chisel these prophesies into stone, and bury them in my back yard. Thousands of years from now, people will wonder how I could predict the future with such accuracy, and they shall worship me, rightfully.

When watching this carnage on YouTube, white people ask themselves if it is okay to be laughing.
4. An Alabama kicker misses a game-winning field goal as time expires, giving Notre Dame the championship. Furious that his master Lucifer has apparently reneged, Nick Saban calls upon his daughter to thrust open the bowels of the earth with a strap-on, so that the entire state of Alabama can storm the gates of Hell. On an unrelated note, literacy rates across the country skyrocket a month later.

9. As Obama’s Commubots are about to guarantee victory in New York, thus ensuring a millennium of darkness, Nick Saban makes a miraculous return at Times Square.

Bacon does shrooms for the first time, loses his mind, and walks through the casino floor bottom-less until security puts him to bed. Allen wins 5 grand playing casino War, and blows it all on three hookers. He ends up just talking with them all night instead of having sex. Hot Piece lays out topless in the Euro section of the pool, acting casual about it while we’re all in shock. Bolen tries to get us all tickets to Siegfried and Roy. We try to tell him the show ended like 10 years ago because one of the Tigers ate Roy’s pecker off. He becomes uncontrollably distraught and buys an early flight home.
