Newstradamus Hat Contest

I just created a new character who will have a panel of his own.  He's "Newstradaumus," and he's the Master of the Bleedin' Obvious as Basil Fawlty would say.  You can see his debut HERE.  As you can see, he has magical occult powers that enable him to unerringly predict the future.  This is a request for everybody to pick the best hat for him to wear.  Or maybe he should wear different hats at different times. Click on the illustration to see it full-size.

Another problem is his name.  I googled "Newstradamus" and the name has already been used, as has "Knowstradamus"and "Nustradamus" and "Noostradamus" — so while you're voting, feel free to suggest a name for him, too.  It doesn't have to be based on Nostradamus, of course.  I should say, there's a sketch comedy troupe called "Newstradamus," so I really can't use that name.  A possible variant would be "Newsadamus."  How does that sound?

Some people think that Newstradamus might just be Stand-Up Guy in disguise, with his red hair stuffed up in his hat.  Don't ask me.  I'm just the cartoonist.

Vote by emailing me at:

Or just vote below in the "Comments," of course.

The best name that's come up so far is "Nostrapundit."

And then there's "Nostrabupkus."

If nobody has a better idea, I'm going to go with "Nowstradamus," because it's as close as possible to "Newstradamus," but is NOT being used by somebody else, and it does the same job of suggesting a contemporary Nostradamus.
