So…2016. Come in, please. Let’s see…what’s bringing you here today?
–I have a bad bout of celebrities dying, and I’m afraid I’ve caught a severe form of political bullshittery.
I see. Well, let’s do some tests. Any deaths recently?
–Yeah, three just over Christmas.
Uh-huh. *scribbles* How long has this been going on?
–Since January, at least.
*scribbles some more* What about the bullshittery?
–*sighs* Brexit, Trump, Aleppo, Turkey…do I need to continue?
*puts down notepad* No, I think that’s enough. 2016, I hate to say it, but you’re in a pretty bad shape. Thinks don’t look well…Now, I have good and bad news for you.
–What’s the good news?
Your problems will be over soon.
–Oh, really? *looks hopeful* Oh…and the bad news?
You will die in four days. Sorry, mate.
