Why do all ancient prophecies concern the falling of a mighty wizard, the destruction of an empire, the birth of a once and future king? Are there any ancient, crumbling tomes or crystal balls that fortell the birth of a pretty good tax accountant or marketing project manager?

Well, why not?

I'd like to know that somewhere there was a sybil that threw her head back in an ecstatic trance, and fortold "Lo, in the dying years of the second millenium hence, there shall be born a child who will grow into a man wise in the ways of Excel, and he shall make the occasional clever remark or cake, and donate many dinarii to an 'Adopt a hyena' fund."

Everyone should have a prophetic omen of their birth.

That's it, I'm going to go write something funny.

And if I could draw I might just make it a webcomic.

Feh. You draw well enough for a webcomic, I've seen.

I draw well enough for xkcd, possibly...

Well..."draw well enough for a web comic" isn't precisely a compliment :) But it was well-meant. The sketch-outliny stuff you draw with a little color would be quite passable.
