Skeeter Davis alert:
End of the world in 2012

Publication: Sun
Date: 22 Mar. 2010

Is that Mayan god sticking his tongue out at me? I mean, I don't care if you are divine and made of gold, good manners are never out of fashion.

We've had a bunch of end of the world prophecies from good Christians past and present in the tabloids recently, but this is the first Skeeter Davis Alert in the tabs from everybody's favorite doomsayers of the day, Them Friggin' Mayans. The Sun adds the extra scoop of fun telling us we can blame it on scientists unleashing a nuclear horror, which is totally different from the sun being lined up with the center of the galaxy, which is the astronomical event the Mayans saw coming through math, not prophecy, an event they decided would be a good time to reset their calendar, not the end of the world as some chowderheads would have you believe.

Still...Them Friggin' Mayans!
