Old white people foretell doom. News at 11.

In this case, the doom is being caused by old people.

Same as the Shot Clock, replace it with a Doomsday Stopwatch.

Does that rely on the Russian missiles making it to orbit before they plummet back down onto Mother Russia?

So we might get our hair a bit mussed?

I'm still going to Romania in May.    Might as well see this up close and personal.

Used to just be about nukes but they keep adding components to stay relevant.

Maybe use a pot of water for climate change. Instead of midnight, you worry about the boiling point.

This is like the last 90 seconds of a close basketball game. It's going to be nothing but timeouts, intentional fouls, and free throws for 30 minutes until we're all bored and finally incinerated.

I grew up doing duck and cover drills.  I knew all that hard work would pay off eventually.

Well, I'm hoping it's a doomsday leap-year or something. Then I can squeeze another year out of my pathetic existence.

I mean, wouldn't you be if you just made shiat up and people still took you seriously?

Did they call you Bert?

And Bert the Turtle was very alert,

When danger threatened him he never got hurt,

He knew just what to do🎵

They weren't nuke proof.  They just got us to duck 'n cover so the smaller piles of ash would be easier to sweep up.

This one was really great though.

I supposed so.

I mean, I make shiat up all the time, but no one takes me seriously ever.
