We love the ridiculousness that has been going around on the news, the internet, on billboards, and in “normal” people’s actually daily conversations of late with this whole May 21, 2011 being the judgement day thing, with the rapture supposed to occur as Jesus “son of god” returns to earth. Surprisingly, we’ve shocked ourselves that we’re shocked at how many people who are genuinely stupid enough to be concerned that they might be raptured, or worse, not be raptured, on May 21st.
More than anything though, we love that this whole sudden talk of May 21 being the date of rapture thing is merely the culmination of a really long publicity ploy for a book called “The Doomsday Code” which we saw advertising a book that is referring to May 21, 2011 as “judgment day” on the New York City subway.
The advertisement is also letting us know that if we want to learn more about the impending rapture in our final days on earth, we should buy the book!!! Wakka wakka! To be honest though, we’d much rather spend our time selling time shares of the Brooklyn Bridge to elderly people in Florida.
We hope that all those genuinely worried and those looking forward to the rapture hold their breath on May 22, 2011 for word about whether or not 200,000 missing persons reports have suddenly been filed due to this rapture thing.
Can we get an amen from the congregation?!
Also, while we’re at it, did you guys hear about this videotape that they found in the woods of Maryland about this group of friends? The evil and mysterious Blair Witch got them! We SO hope that you go out and buy the “Blair Witch Project” movie to learn more about the dangerous Blair Witch that haunts the woods of Maryland.
