Technically, even older:

That was not the earliest source we found for the text, though. It also appeared in Mother Jones Magazine in December 1977, not 1979. The text said that it was "submitted by Ann Gold," and that it was "found by a janitor friend at the Suicide Prevention Center" in San Francisco

(I subscribed to their RSS feed after Brooke appeared on the Fark and Schnitt podcast)

I love it when people say 'oooh I'm such an Aries' (or whatever) when they are not. End of March was Aries 2,000 years ago, but due to precession of the stars you were born under Pisces.

That said I do think most people are dickheads and I am a bit of a prick.

I stopped believing in horoscopes when I read one for Leo that said."You have a wide circle of  friends and are always the life of the party." That doesn't describe me at all. I'm very introverted, depressed and maybe a little bitter.

Snarky horoscopes have been around for a long time. I've always been a big fan of TheOnion's horoscope section

In the mid to late 70's I remember my Dad bringing home something like this people at work were passing around , I only sort of remember one and it said Pisces people do terrible things to small animals.

I can imagine this kind of thing being shared as long as there have been horoscopes.

How can a horoscope prediction be "honest"? They're 100% pulled out of someone's ass

No Chuck, don't you see? Everyone born between certain dates have the exact same personalities! They taught us this in like 3rd grade.

Sorry, you're right. I would probably understand that better if I was born a month earlier

Because satire didn't exist until the brick-wall comedy clubs of the middle 1980s

Probably deserve the b*tch comment, but I'm not bisexual (NTTAWWT)
