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.
