CHILDHOOD STUFF: The HorrorScope

James / May 22nd, 2011

This is what happened when they put me in charge of the horoscope section of the school newspaper. (about age 9)

I was nuts. Let me retype it so you can read better, and so I can see how insane I was.

CAPRICORN (Born December 22 to January 19)
Something will try to knock you to the ground. Stand firm.

AQUARIUS (Born January 20 to February 18)
Be on the look out for a round purple object. Why? You’ll find out.

PISCES (Born February 19 to March 20)
You will find an orange dog in your living room.

ARIES (Born March 21 to April 19)
Everything will happen to you the way it is meant. Everything will be usual. Except for the green goat trashing up your kitchen.

TAURUS (Born April 20 to May 20)
I bet that you are going to drop something. Not much of a big deal, but I predict that one of these days YOU are going to drop something.

GEMINI (Born May 21 to June 20)
Within five years, you are going to find a million dollars on the street.

CANCER (Born June 21 to July 22)
You can’t count on these to come true, but THIS ONE is true. You are the same sign as me.

LEO (Born July 23 to August 22)
Be careful today. Someone who’s name begins with a Z is going to play a prank on you.

VIRGO (Born August 23 to September 22)
Hey! Look all over! Check all floors! You may find a tiny little golden thing that will give you magic powers.

LIBRA (Born September 23 to October 22)
You are going to eat a frog. You will find a giant bug in your bedroom. You will turn into a cat. You’ll eat another frog. And you’ll read a fake horoscope.

SCORPIO (Born October 23 to November 21)
When you come home one of these days, I suggest you DON’T enter at your normal entrance. Try the window, the back door, or maybe the chimney.

SAGITTARIUS (Born November 22 to December 21)
Don’t look up in the sky. Something may fall on you.

    Heh, if you weren’t so busy with other things I’d say you should write more of these. :)

    Very bias but funny.
    I’m a Libra. I think that being a cat isn’t that horrible, but eating a frog over again? How unforgiving!

    I’m Leo, fuck anybody who tires pranks on me

  • May 22, 2011 at 6:34 am

    These are so specific and still very generic… Some of them make sense, like the first one, but some are just crazy. Love it!
    (Also I love that you spelled horoscope with two R’s on the top of the page but with one R in the Libra one)

    I’m Sagittarius, I’m gonna try not to look up in the sky.

    I don’t know any person with a first name starting with Z, so I should be all right!

  • May 22, 2011 at 9:59 am

    Hey, you predicted my sign (Pisces) right. I do have a dog in my living room. She’s not orange though, she’s a blondie, lol!

  • Kiarachu

    May 22, 2011 at 3:02 pm

    I don’t know anyone who’s name begin with Z…and if I knew someone like this and he/she will do a prank to me he/she felt my evil wrath!

    Nice, I could really use a million dollars. For… something?

    I used to write for our school newspaper too, but unfortunately I threw out all that stuff years ago. I kinda regret it now.

    I wonder if Weird Al got a hold of a copy of this and was inspired to write “Your Horoscope for Today”?

  • killteck

    May 22, 2011 at 6:57 pm

    James are you sure you didn’t just make this up today?

  • May 22, 2011 at 7:27 pm

    Oh my God, I DID drop something today! You are psychic! XD

  • virilevocalist

    May 22, 2011 at 9:54 pm

    LOL this reminds me of that spin off of Space Ghost Coast To Coast…. Cartoon Planet!!!

    One of the little sketches from that show would be Zorak’s Horrorscopes, where he’d pretty much insult you, hahahaha.

  • May 23, 2011 at 12:33 am

    Huh, I have gone into my house through the window lately…

  • May 23, 2011 at 1:08 am

    Actually I did watch the McKids review and you did mention Grimace’s house looking like Barney the Dinosaurs testicles, which happened to be round and purple…Well.. you got me there!

    -Aquarius, out!

  • May 23, 2011 at 1:45 am

    I wish I was that ambitious at 9.

  • Fredward

    May 23, 2011 at 2:23 am

    LOL that is some seriously funny shit, it’s crazy that you came up with stuff like that at 9! The scorpio one especially made me ROFL.

  • bill

    May 23, 2011 at 2:54 am

  • May 23, 2011 at 8:42 am

  • May 24, 2011 at 12:11 pm

    Epic!

    I did something similar but this was when I was working for the school magazine when i was about 17yo.

    We called it horrorskåpet, wich is basicly the same thing in swedish.

  • May 25, 2011 at 3:25 am

    Even as a kid you had a warped sense of humor. I suppose that shouldn’t come as much surprise. :)
