'Pizza Profiles' Add Spice to Almanac

The new, Old Farmer's Almanac is out. It predicts a much colder winter than normal. The Almanac also includes "pizza profiles." It says people who prefer just one meat topping are "irritable, argumentative procrastinators." Natural leaders choose "nontraditional" toppings and good parents like veggies on their pizza. The almanac claims its weather forecasts are 80 percent accurate. It makes no claims for the accuracy of its "pizza profiles."
