Nostradamus: Behold, I am the soothsayer of the ancients, and I come with predictions of the misty future yore.

Boff: Did you predict a shave, Sparticus.

(everyone guffaws)

Nostradamus: Never heard that one before! No, really

Thud: What’s up Joaquin Phoenix?

Nostradamus: Minstrel boxes? Light emitters? Snack cakes?

Thud: Yes

Kid: Wait; are you predications because you’ve travelled through time? That’s cheating!

Nostradamus: I’ve said too much. To the Nostramobile!

Boff: Car

Nostradamus: Look, whatever man. I’ll predict you’ll be hated by your peers.
