Rapture Me This
So, today is the day.
The world ends, or begins to end if I am understanding correctly, the faithful go poof and bye-bye and the rest of us wait it out in the ruins, flame and muck. Thing is, there are a lot of 'rest of us' aren't there.
I sent Barkley out to investigate. He just got back.
So Barkley, what's the skinny?
"Well, I went to Asia and checked with the Buddhists. Nice guys. They got nothing on their itinerary. No 'Judgement' plans. All good.
While I was there I hopped over to speak with some Shinto priests. Nada. No Rapture going on.
When to Israel, Russia and other places I knew I could find Jewish worshippers. Likewise. Nothing.
Still awaiting on some calls from the Muslims, the Hindus and a few others but for the most part it looks like we're in the clear. The way I figure it only the believers who don't believe enough will perish or something. The rest of us are A.O.K."
Good to know. What if you don't believe in any of this stuff.
"Then don't sweat it. It's all bunk."
"Oh wait, there is one tragic bit I found out about."
There is? What?
RIP Macho Man Randy Savage (1952-2011) - While not a huge wrestling fan, this dude had personality, style, showmanship and did some amazing voices in animation over the years. He'll be missed.
