Awful Mayan alpocalypse jokes

Of all the ones I’ve gotten, this was the best.

Get it? I’m not asking if you wanted it, just if you got it…


Day One

Today is, so happy 13th baktun, everybody!  I hope all of you had a great time last night ringing in the new Mayan era.

Now that we’ve reached the other side of the big scary conglomeration of 12s, I am hoping that things settle down, though I don’t hold out much hope.  Just from a preliminary click through the interwebs, I have noticed that the Nibiru folks are still frothing at the mouth insisting that the super-secret (and super invisible, apparently) planet is still out there and still poses a grave and existential threat to us here on planet Earth.  Either it has “changed direction” at the last minute and will “swing around” to hit us just after the new year.

And in other apocalypse news, Ronald Weinland has the next scheduled end of the world event date: 19 May 2013.  Only 148 days to go!

If you find yourself in Minneapolis, Minnesota, you could go to Hell’s Kitchen for their Last Supper celebration this Friday.  It sounds like a good time and one of the better end of the world as we know it marketing gimicks that I’ve seen lately.  I love that they will have fortune tellers, psychics and palm readers.

I still have baking to do if I’m going to have enough cookies to build my replica of the main temple at Chichen Itza!


…or burgergeddon, or a cheesetastrophe, which is certainly what your primary care doctor will call it when you go in for your next blood draw.  Your cholesterol after one of these would be truly catastrophic!

Of course those of us who know and love In-N-Out burger know that you can get lots of stuff off the secret menu, including extensions of the DoubleDouble (two burgers with two slices of cheese) by ordering, for example, a 4×4 (you get 4 meat patties with 4 slices of cheese).  People have ordered heart-stoppingly massive extensions of the cheeseburger, right on up to a 100×100, though I can’t imagine for the life of me why you would want to.  I imagine that anyone could have gone into an In-N-Out and order a 12×12 , though strangely enough it didn’t occur to me to do so.  But then again, I’m more Harto than Harley myself.
