I guess, Mike takes after his father.
Poor Burt. He didn’t look so good there at the end.
Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.
And how long DID Burt and Loni last? Or Burt and Sally? Or Burt and Dinah…?
One could only hope (against hope) that Jeane’s weather predictions would continue to work over the years. But history tells us otherwise.
iirc Burt and ‘Anybody’ was an easy prediction.

Nobody predicted Trump
Thanks a lot. It just sank in, this strip and I are really old.
The trick to “psychic” and “astrological” predictions: Every year, throw out a hundred of them. 90 are things that are vague and almost bound to happen anyway, and 10 are imaginative but improbable. Then ignore the misses and trumpet the hits. If one of the “out there” ones should happen to come true by sheer coincidence, buy billboards and TV spots about it.
Hint: If you run across ads for “this guy who predicted Trump would win in 2016”, it’s the same scam.

People get separated from their money in the most extraordinary ways. sigh…
“Today’s appearance by Jeanne Dixon is cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.”
I you knew you were right about the flooding then why didn’t you by insurance this year, Ma?
Ma, if you planted rice in an unflooded field, how did it survive?
Safe Prediction. There is Always a very heavy rain Somewhere.
You can also predict a bad Drought with almost perfect certainty. Somewhere Else.
