Told You I Did

Earlier this year I made a prediction. I predicted that monocles were due for a comeback. Well, it looks like I'm batting 1000 as far as predictions go!

According to, there's been a recent and sudden surge of interest in monocles:
But things are changing. The optician Vision Express has announced it is to re-introduce the single eye-glass following a sudden surge of interest among customers. “To our surprise we have had dozens of requests in the last few months so we thought we’d bring back the monocle on a trial basis,” says Bryan Magrath, the chief executive of Vision Express. “We’re as puzzled as anyone by the interest.”
See! Told you, I did! Of course as near as I can tell, this was the only prediction I made all year, so it's not that difficult to be right. A single prediction either comes true or it doesn't. Still, I think I'm on a roll.

I'm going to go ahead and predict that next year stove pipe hats will experience a surge in popularity.

  1. Since you've been granted this great power, you should predict a great economy and lots of work for all cartoonists.
