Skeeter Davis Alert™: End Times to begin 9/11/2010

Publication: Sun
Date: 1 Mar. 2010

Once again, the Sun sucks it up and puts out a headline this blog can actually use. After I chided them about being too vague and useless, they are starting to put ACTUAL DATES on their end of the world prophecies.

Mark your calendars for Sept. 11, 2010, because God's got some new tenants looking around and it's easier to close the deal on an unoccupied property.

I wonder how they picked that date? Is it really easy for rubes to remember?

This would be a good time to point out that my close personal bud Padre Mickey did a thesis on tabloid eschatology. If you are out there, Padre, how common was it for them to give an exact date?

They love to give dates, but the dates are usually waay in the future. My favorite date is "Easter, 2055." Easter that year will be April 18, which means it will be the day before my 101st birthday. Of course, I'll probably already be wit Jeezus by then. By the way, that date comes from the diary Jesus kept while in the tomb, according to The Sun.

WV= trapoom I'd rather be in the taproom than the trapoom.
