Spiffy, subby? Not even close. Ah well....It's not as if it's from  The Onion.

It's from Andy Borowitz, who IMHO, is funnier than The Onion.

Too bad the article is satire.

This is just going to make the end worse. When Bolon Yokte K'uh, the nine-footed God of War comes back with his other god buddies some time shortly after Dec.21st, possibly jaguars from outer space yielding some sort of corn weapon, he'll think we're just making fun of him. He will turn all our heads into Jiffy Pop containers, then Global Warming will heat us up and our heads will expand and expand, and then the Gods of the Vases will rip us open and feast upon the popcorn of our souls. Or something similar.

Borowitz is okay I guess, but he makes The Onion look like Malcolm X.

Hard to beat PacMan or the Moog.

Easy Reader: Hard to beat PacMan or the Moog.

 
Definitely one of my favorites.  That and the one for Les Paul's birthday.

The one they did for Freddy Mercury gets my vote as best ever.
 
2012-12-20 01:14:07 AM  
So what will happen first: gun ban in the U.S. or Mayan apocalypse?

Mine too, especially since they used one of my favorite Queen songs, "Don't Stop Me Now".

Nonsense. Everyone knows when the world will really end: July 5th.

after what they put me through to enjoy festivus, this better be good.

Hate Google right now. Calendar sync no longer supported. My world might as well end on Friday.
 
2012-12-20 02:08:27 AM  
It makes me sad that this is satire.

I'd love a really great Doodle for the Mayan "Apocalypse".
 
2012-12-20 02:09:08 AM  
No one has printed any 2014 calendars. Guess that means the world ends in 2013. Derp.

I'm... not sure what that means? The Onion is more ethnically diverse than one white guy? The Onion is a counterculture thorn in the Man's side which will ultimately come to a doomed end? The Onion is a snappier dresser than Andy Borowitz?

I only start worrying if Nate Silver says there's something to all this nonsense.

A snappily dressed onion? My god, the world IS going to end!

I sort of wish I knew one of these people. I just really want to see the looks on their faces when December 22 rolls around and nothing's happened.

Great, now I gotta stock up for the 5th of July?

Time to get more guns, ammo, hookers, canned goods, and hookers.

WeenerGord: Google has no doodle at all today. What a letdown


It's weird that they didn't post it here, I also checked australia, canada, and japan but all of those are normal also. The one that I posted a couple posts up is visible on google.co.hk and google.co.uk
