After the RaptureMay 23, 2011
No jokes about Judgment Day today. While we were sitting on my mother-in-law’s shaded back deck last night, enjoying green tea and a light breeze and joking about how the Rapture never happened, Missouri was being smacked by vicious twisters, and Iceland was erupting. So forget all this talk of prophecy; it’s the usual bullshit. Bad things happen. Let’s think of the people who had to live through the storms — and those who didn’t — rather than the people who choose to believe in a fairy tale to justify their closed-minded lives, and those of us who use it for comedy fodder.
