We Almost There!

So, the Rapture didn't occur in May... there must have been an error in the math or something. Well, undaunted by his total FAIL!!!, addlepated lunatic Harold Camping has decided that the world will probably end today. Protip- don't make grandiose end-of-the-world predictions when the stink of failure still clings to you so strongly. I took this photo a few months ago, when I didn't know what the hell the sign on the minivan referred to:





My favorite feature of the sign is the admonition not to buy cars from a particular dealer, right under the "rapture" sign. First of all, if you really think you're going to be taken bodily from this earth in a few weeks, why even bother with such worldly concerns? Even better, though, is the person's ability to smell out a small lie while living a huge, huge lie. Yeah, you realize that the car dealer lied to you when he told you the transmission would be sound for another 15,000 miles, but you believe that the fundamentalist kook who asked you to squander your life savings is on the level.

You just can't make this shit up.

UPDATE: Shoulda thought of this before... I guess the term for a failed Rapture is "apocaletdown"... "apocalapse" would also be suitable.

Yeah, he forgot to carry the one. He does math almost as well as I do!

Pardon my language here but.. It is unbefuckingleaveable to me (yes, yes spell check, I know it's not a "real" word, thank you VERY much) that some jack ass would put that on their van. AND.. just nano seconds before I read your words about the bumper sticker below, the same thought was floating through my head.

Look it. If Jesus is coming back, I'm going to need more than a few days or weeks notice in order to get my shit together!
Plus I've got kids running wild that need to be reigned in. Sheesh!
Oh well. I guess Hell is where all the Rock & Roll is-right? :)

People are sheep. When you are involved in that stuff, it's all you can see. Brain washing and denial are both very powerful things.
I cannot believe that people still listen to this idiot.

You look just fine- plus, he loves you, no matter how your hair looks.

Yeah, I got a little heartburn just typing that out.

No no... if I'm going to be "judged" then I've GOT to get a new outfit. Thank you very much.

I was all ready to give you Hell about your title before I saw the lovely van sign. :P

Still around? Was there a curtain time for the end of the world?

No no... if I'm going to be "judged" then I've GOT to get a new outfit. Thank you very much.

When you're raptured, none of your clothes go w/ you.

(7 AM. Rolls over, looks out window)

Sigh. Still there. Still here. Sigh.

Laura said...

M. Bouffant~ Who knew!? No wonder Big J. passed me by.
Damn! I hate it when I get my outfit wrong. :(

Totally unrelated... I had an email from a "Mr. DICKson" in my junk file and unfortunately, it wasn't anyone's penis. :(
