ROCHESTER, NY—Premium eyewear manufacturer Ray-Ban confirmed Monday it has “some very real doubts” about whether its summer 2012 line of sunglasses is something American consumers will be able to pull off.

"We’re always happy to provide some comic relief in an often grim world."

Sig Gissler, Administrator of the Pulitzer Prizes, on the recent Onion petition.

Aries: Love is strong in your sign this week. Please be advised that, precession of the equinoxes or not, this is still your sign.

Taurus: Outside influences will attempt to bedazzle you with strange mathematics and exotic rhetoric about a strange new sign in the sky, preventing you from meeting a dark-haired stranger.

Gemini: Just as the ancient Babylonians were wise to restrict the telling of the future to a mere dozen signs, you would be wise to start new projects at work this week.

Cancer: Vast and mighty cosmic forces stemming from the 12 majestic signs of the zodiac have conspired to foresee travel in your future. That’s right, 12 majestic signs, not 13.

Leo: You know what’s a stupid name for a zodiac sign? Ophiuchus. It certainly doesn’t sound like a sign that would warn you not to make big financial decisions until the full moon.

Virgo: This would be a good time to beware of those who would make major changes to your dearly held belief systems.

Libra: Wait, if an existing constellation has that great an effect on one’s destiny, then why didn’t anyone make a fuss about Eris, Sedna, and Quaoar, the planet-sized objects in the Kuiper belt?

Scorpio: Saturn rising in your sign will subject you to the powerful force of Fate, which everybody knows is stronger by far than electromagnetism, gravity, or the nuclear strong and weak forces.

Sagittarius: Just keep repeating: No matter what, you are still a Sagittarius. You are still a Sagittarius. You are still a Sagittarius.

Capricorn: Faith is the evidence of things not seen, which any well-rounded human being must admit is better than only trusting good hard provable evidence.

Aquarius: This is a good week to spend with family, which is the kind of advice stupid old Ophiuchus would never have given you.

Pisces: Learn to trust your heart. No one ever grew spiritually as a person by doing what the numbers and the science clearly indicate they should do.
