Funny or Die accurately predicted the Jared Fogle sex scandal

Every year around this time, Tech-media-tainment posts a rundown of some of the boldest predictions for the year ahead.
They’re almost all invariably wrong. But one gutsy prediction from last year was eerily accurate.
On Jan. 6, 2015, Funny or Die ran its mostly tongue-in-cheek predictions for the year ahead. One of them was so spot-on it’s crazy.
“Jared from those old Subway commercials will be embroiled in a heinous sex scandal,” Josh Brown wrote. “Get ready for a whole lot of footlong puns.”
He was dead-on, even about the footlong puns.
Brown proudly tooted his own horn in an article on July 21, 2015.
And who can blame him.
