Big, Big Upset Coming Tomorrow, Says Possibly Untrustworthy Source

The next POTUS, the next POTUS, tomorrow will know who it is, who it is! But what if we told you that we’ve been emailed some exclusive information…a bombshell, if you will…about the outcome of the election.

We could publish the two stories we have received about this, but that would require paying a large sum to the very reputable-sounding MuGui YuGuang Inc. out of Monterrey Park, CA, whose site, www.muguiyuguang.org, is “a web site of academic research on national artifacts.”

According to our communication from the organization, the bombshell comes courtesy of “a Californian anonymous scholar of academic research.” Without further ado, the findings of his “earthshaking research study”:

A prophecy about the election results has been made

The “spokesperson” of the prophecy is George Washington

George Washington says Hillary Rodham Clinton will be made our next President

The reason is that God told him so.

There is more – so much more. For example, when George Washington met God, he was feeling isolated. “He was lonely and desolate, often engaging in soliloquy. The only affectionate response he received was from the riding horse that accompanied him.”

If only we could afford the story. The first one came with a note saying it was a “free news report” but that we could receive another for $250. Then the organization was generous enough to send us another free report with more info on the scoop, but we were warned that should we request further information, it would be $450.

Then we received an invoice for $450, with a bolded note that it was due in 30 days. We heart you, MuGui, but we’re not paying.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
