The Simpsons predicted the US would win gold in curling some 8 years ago. Of course, in their version, it happened at the Vancouver Olympics, but still. (Their take on the Vancouver Opening Ceremonies was also eerily accurate.)
And they may have predicted the squirrel who nearly got killed by a snowboarder.
It’s just a matter of time before an actual religious cult forms around The Simpsons and its prophecies.

Before she left, though, she compared the White House to a plantation and made a bid for a book deal one last time.
Page Six ran a brutal attack on Megyn Kelly, prompting some female Fox News employees to fire back that Kelly has been a good mentor and supportive of other women. Because what Murdoch and News Corp should definitely be doing is alienating the remaining women at Fox News.
