Bill Maher #337 Headline Predictions Winter 2014


by Catherine Giordano  
The hottest new toy for Christmas:
"Hands Up, Elmo"*
Whenever HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher goes on hiatus, he devotes the mid-show comedy segment to a series of predictions for newspaper headlines for the period he will be off the air. The November 21, 2014 sow which was the final on for 2014 was no exception.  Maher gave us a slew of ridiculous and funny predictions
 
Whenever HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher goes on hiatus, he devotes the mid-show comedy segment to a series of predictions for newspaper headlines for the period he will be off the air. The November 21, 2014 sow which was the final on for 2014 was no exception.  Maher gave us a slew of ridiculous and funny predictions.
 
For example: 
 
  • Amazon to Offer Baby Delivery
  • Anthropologists Find Woman Untouched by Bill Cosby
  • Pope Francis OK with Just About Everything
  • San Francisco Bans Straight Marriage
  • U.S Tour of Liberian Monkeys Sees Low Ticket Sales
  • Bruce Jenner to Plastic Surgeon: Give me Renee Zellweger’s Old Face

See the video clip. 
 



 
As is now becoming my custom, whenever Maher does this bit, I try to see if I can top him with some of my own predictions.
 
What do you think of these?
  • Hottest New Toy for Christmas is “Hands Up, Elmo.”
  • Palin Tweets: “Santa is a Liberal.”
  • “Elf-on-a-Shelf” is Favorite for Republican Nomination for President
