It's the End of the World!


Well, those Fundamentalist Christian nutbars are at it again. Today will be the End of the World apparently -- the Rapture and Judgment Day. To mark this auspicious occasion, I present a wonderful old skit on this very topic, featuring the brilliant Peter Cook and the inimitable Rowan Atkinson. Enjoy!

Hilarious. I'm wondering how the nutbars are going to explain why it never happened tomorrow morning!

knitwit: Just look back to September, 1994 and the last time this guy did this.

Personally, I'm for the Rapture. Were there a vote for it.

I loved Rowan so much in THEBLACK ADDER :) One of my favourite shows back when I was a kid.

3 Cheers for the Nutbars...! We need more memory jogs so we can laugh our arses off!

ROFL Oh thank you for showing that. .I haven't seen it in ages. I truly needed a good laugh, and you provided it!

It was supposed to begin in New Zealand, and the last that I heard, all was calm, and no one is reported missing.

But considering that Harold Camping rakes in $100 million dollars a year, for predicting something that is supposed to happen years ahead, maybe we should organize our own forecast of doomsday. We will even accept payments from Paypal. .that is after I get through an investigation of my account, after it was hacked this past week. It seems that even they are not fool-proof. Is that a sign? lol

I wonder what kind of excuse Harold Camping will be giving us this time for the rapture that didn't happen??
