Edit: It looks like meat’s back on the menu boys, it’s December 20th 2012 and the world is going to end again tomorrow. So all of those things you thought you had better do before the world ended last year? Do those again. If they’ll let you out of solitary for long enough. And what are you doing online in solitary?
Edit: The world didn’t end in May 2011 as far as I can tell. But it is going to end tomorrow on October 21st 2011. S’true. See what time the world is ending if you don’t believe me.
By the time you read this, on May 20th 2011, the world will be officially ending tomorrow. That’s what scrote-faced Harold Camping has been saying since just before he predicted the world would end in 1994. In a book entitled 1994? he also claimed that no man could know the day and time of the end of the world, though now he says that it’s going to be 6pm on May 21st 2011. He must have got a bit of clarity in the interim 16 years, or maybe he read it on the internet.
Prince partied like it was 1999, and then had to figure out what to do in 2000, and James Bond’s tomorrow never died until Pierce Brosnan went the way of Roger Moore. So where does this leave the Camping franchise the day after Judgment Day fails to materialize? I guess there’s room for another book about how he got it wrong again. Or maybe he’ll skip his own personal Armageddon courtesy of a bishop with a vacuum cleaner and some psychedelic mushrooms.
Interestingly there is a 500 person music venue called the Underworld below a pub in Camden called the World’s End which has been a pub for longer than the United States of America has been a country. Maybe Mr. Camping could don a bit of black PVC and some eyeliner and head down to see Hundredth there on May 22nd. After all, in their press release, Hundredth are described as “is one of the most intense and emotionally-driven bands you will see in 2010”. I’m sure Harold is as curious as I am about how they perform in 2011.
