There is 5000 scientific evidence that anything will happen, but there are numerous things that could easily threaten the octopus species in the year 2012, such as a geomagnetic reversal, Jellyfish strike or supernova. Or something more intimate, like a Lady GAGA pandemic, or a hair war.
Last night on America's Got Talent, my friend Lio was on the show playing a harmonica while my other friend Sammy Joe was stripping to the music. The crowd was unhappy and the judges stopped the performance. Sharon Osbourne said it made it her want to kiss. Lio started crying and Sammy Joe showed the crowd his penis. The next act was my brother on a motorcyle jumping over corpses. The crowd was anazed and the judges hated the act! Howie said, "Congratulations! Your going to Harlem!" I think I will aaudition next season and sing Hey There Delilah while my pet hog dances. Wish me luck!
