PROCRASTINATOR'S PREDICTIONS COME TRUE - AGAIN
Fearlessly, accurately and belatedly, the Procrastinator's Club of America
has just released its predictions of things to come in 1991. Among them:
- That Pee-wee Herman will run into trouble of an embarrassing nature.
- That after hitting the ski slopes at taxpayer expense, John Sununu will
hit the skids as White House chief of staff.
- That the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics will expire at the age of 74.
On the button every one. How do they do it? Simple.
"It's a matter of timing," says Procrastinator's Club founder and acting
president Les Waas. "Instead of making predictions at the beginning of
the year, we usually end up waiting until the end."
Waas has been acting president for more than a decade because the club
hasn't gotten around to holding an election. He says the club has more
than 9,500 members and contends that another half a million or so would
join if they got around to it.
The club is still in the midst of its 1983 membership drive. If you want
to join, write to Box 712, Bryn Athyn, Pa. 19009. Take your time.
