Did you see our predictions for 2018 blog post?
If not, don’t worry, you can read it here. We can’t quite believe that we’ve come to the end of June already! Where is the time going? We thought now would be a good time to check in on our predictions for 2018, to check if any of them have actually happened. Let’s take a look:
- Melania Trump divorces Donald because he is shockingly bad at golf and pays people so that they will let him win.
- Danny Dyer becomes Lord of Walford on the 17th.
Did it happen? Sadly not. Melania is yet to leave her wonderful husband and Danny Dyer is still waiting on his Lord of Walford title. Oh well. There’s always next year.
- All UK businesses will roll out 4 week Pawternity leave for all new pet owners.
- There will be a world Spaghetti Shortage and the Italians will riot for 3 weeks.
- During the winter Olympics in South Korea, the ski jump is cancelled and all participants will participate in a snowball fight instead.
Did it happen? Pawternity leave is becoming more popular, but not all businesses have jumped on the bandwagon yet (they should though, that would be cool! If you buy 12 pets a year you can get a whole year off work!). The Spaghetti Shortage didn’t happen and we are pretty glad about that. The snowball fight didn’t happen either. It looks like we’re gonna need to wait another four years for that one… never mind.
- Barack Obama will drop his first studio album ‘White House, Weed and Women’ featuring the likes of Snoop ‘Doggy’ Dogg, Lil Wayne and Post Malone.
- An assassination attempt of Theresa May is foiled.
Did it happen? Unfortunately, Obama hasn’t dropped that album, but we’re still waiting in anticipation. Theresa May is still very much alive and kicking. Again, not much luck with these predictions.
- Richard Branson dies age 67 in a spaceship accident. The business world crumbles because he was so ‘edgy’ and ‘cool’. Madonna executes an outstanding performance of ‘Like a Virgin’ at his funeral.
- It will become illegal to eat oranges/tangerines/clementines/satsumas and other related orange citrus fruits while on public transport as it shows lack of consideration for those who don’t want to have an orange-scented commute.
Did it happen? Richard Branson is still being all innovative and cool and much to our dismay orange based fruits are still very much allowed on public transport.
- Manchester City will win the European cup on the 26th of May.
- The Queen will pass away and leave a tell all memoir about her life. We will all discover that the entire royal family are actually reptilian overlords.
Did it happen? Manchester City have had no such luck. Are we surprised? Not really. A bit of a far fetch from us to be fair, we’ll make a better prediction next time we promise! The Queen is still very much here and she looked utterly fabulous at the Royal Wedding back in May. Work it gurl! We would like to read that memoir though…
- Boris Johnson becomes PM after Theresa May’s sudden resignation.
- Anna Wintour will announce that Crocs will be the summer’s hottest wardrobe must have and she will subsequently be dismissed from Vogue.
Did it happen? Boris Johnson hasn’t become PM due to a sudden resignation from big TM, and we can’t decide if that’s a good or a bad thing. Anna Wintour hasn’t announced Crocs as the summer’s hottest wardrobe must have, BUT they are making a comeback and that’s a real problem. For a mere £645, you too can get your hands on a pair of these PLASTIC Balenciaga bad boys that are a SS18 favourite.
