Aussie PM: “End of the World is Coming”
Spoken with the same accent as Julian Assange, Prime Minister of Australia Julia Gillard has announced:
My dear remaining fellow Australians, the end of the world is coming. It wasn’t Y2K, it wasn’t even the carbon price, It turns out that the Mayan calendar was true. While Australia’s best and brightest of the CSI row have not been able to confirm this, I’m confident triple J’s prediction that the world is about to end. Whether the final blow comes from flesh-eating zombies, demonic hell-beasts or from the total triumph of K-Pop, if you know one thing about me it is this: I will always fight for you to the very end. And at least, this means I won’t have to do Q&A again. Good luck to you all.

Also, if the world doesn’t end, we should really force American presidents to do Parliamentary Q&A (I love watching the British version on c-span). And we should also laugh at the similarity of #MY2K and Y2K, and we should acknowledge that of course the Mayan calendar “was true” and from a certain perspective, the world ends every day (or even more frequently than that) and from a Hegelian perspective, the only truth of “things” is that they end.

Zombie apocalypse, alien attack, nuclear war, or colliding with a black hole. There are many theories and rumors floating around about how the world might one day end. According to the Mayan calendar, the end of Earth is Dec. 21 of this year.
