Well, I Guess We’re All Still Here
Is it safe to come out? I figured if the world was going to come to an end, it would be apocalyptic. But I guess I can unload my bunker, now. Everybody’s still here. Of course, now I’ve got to figure out what to do with all these cans of Spam, jars of peanut butter, bottles of water, and all this Sterno.
Come to think of it, has anyone heard from old Harold Camping, that nutty pastor who made this prediction in the first place? I began to wonder as May 21, 2011 came and went all over the world. And then I learned that it was all based on midnight, Jerusalem time. That would make it 4PM Central Time. Oh well, on we go. But I have to hand it to Pastor Camping. He did give us all an opportunity to play “The End of the World” by Skeeter Davis, “If Tomorrow Never Comes” by Garth Brooks, “It’s the End of the World as We Know It” by R.E.M., and “Rapture” by Blondie, among others. We can all use a week of fun mania every now and again. I am a little concerned about the folks who fell for it. I hope they didn’t give up, like, all of their worldly possessions in light of this belief. Well, I guess if they did, they can always have some of my Spam.
