Thursday is the end of the world, which sucks because I’m going to pub trivia tonight and the prize is always money off your next bar tab and there’s just no way I’m getting back over that way Wednesday because that’s the big Scooper Bowl and then I have to do the podcast. I mean, maybe if the end of the world comes really late Thursday, since after work I can’t get to the bar before 7pm or so. All of which is to say . . . well, I’ll just let this image do the talking for the moment, and we’ll continue after the jump.
That’s right, on Thursday, the Nuclear Baby will tease back his bangs, lovingly cradle his giant doobie, and ride the EXPLOSION of SIN straight into your living room, fool. Crazy Texas-based cult The House of Yahweh is trusting that the third time’s a charm when it comes to naming doomsdays — September 12, 2006 came and went with little fanfare and June 12, 2007 was a great big non-doomsday disappointment, but this time they’re so totally sure that June 12, 2008 is absolutely IT. Nuclear Baby will have his day.
The HoY has seen a lot of poor press in its history, like when its leaders have been prosecuted for raping kids and then occasionally killing kids, too. If you head to the HoY site, you’ll find a helpful “Fact or Fiction” page addressing these claims. See?
* The House of Yahweh is a dangerous cult with guns and ammunition.
* The House of Yahweh offers animal sacrifices.
* House of Yahweh Members are locked in and no one is allowed in or out.
* House of Yahweh Members are only fed bread and water but work long hours daily.
* Everyone’s possessions go to The House of Yahweh.
Okay, so nothing on that list is actually addressed or debunked on the site. So . . . I guess all that stuff’s true.
Anyway, I just wanted to give you all a heads up so that you can plan your final days accordingly.
Special thanks to everyone who sent this in, including Mike W., Greg, and others. It has just occurred to me that when normal people search their GMail for “doomsday” they only get one, maybe two results. I had 54.
