It seems the guy who predicted the world was going to end doesn’t wanna talk about it the day after the world doesn’t end. Harold Camping, the international idiot who declared the world was going to end said he was “flabbergasted” the world didn’t end, which was basically his only comment. He’s probably not nearly as flabbergasted as the bigger idiots who actually believed him and spent all their money expecting there not to be a Sunday. I’m flabbergasted people actually follow crack pots like this. I’m partially flabbergasted Fox has any credibility with people then along comes this nut job, which makes all those Fox nuts look reliable (yes, I got another crack against conservatives in this blog post. You guys have been too quiet lately). I’m also flabbergasted there’s still anyone left alive who uses the word “flabbergasted”. He probably exclaimed in a curmudgeonly manner, “Consarnit, criminy and oh, beeswax! The world didn’t end and that just beats ones gums! How did that not happen? I did the dagburn math! Did I forget to carry the flappin’ two? Now they’re gonna say I don’t know from nothing!”
Sorry, I just looked up a dictionany of old timey words of emphasis.
Camping also predicted the world was going to end in 1994. Not learning from that mistake, he and his followers went about predicting and believing it again. I have one fact and one hypothesis: Fact: Everyone who’s ever predicted the end of the world has been proven wrong. Hypothesis: If this rapture thing ever does happen and it sucks just a couple million of the “saved” (those good enough) into Heaven, Harold Camping isn’t going to be one of them. I think to qualify to reach beyond the Pearly Gates, one has to NOT con a bunch of people to destroy their lives.
And here’s the rough.
And here’s the one I didn’t do, which a colleague again said “meh” to.
See, it’s funny cuz Arnie went out thinking the world was going to end so he impregnated a whole bunch of girls…OK, so it’s not funny.
