So is it Rapture yet where you are, or what?

It is nearly 5pm local time on 5/21 - Rapture Day according to some of the local X-ian fundies and their learned radio demigods. Um, nope, no Rapture yet here in Podunkville.

One of the best bumper stickers ever = "After the Rapture, Can I Have Your Car?" Not a lot of people around here think that's funny.

I loved "The Week" Magazine's reporting of Rapture Day, under "Good week for: The human race, after the world did not end of May 21, as Christian radio broadcaster Harold Camping had predicted. [Editor's note: We filed this item several days early, but will print a correction if it's wrong.]" Brilliant.

I think I'll spend the rest of Rapture Day playing with my kids. Could be my last few hours on Earth - I suppose that's a true statement regardless of anyone's crazy apocalyptic predictions. May as well be doing stuff everyone in the family will enjoy at least a little bit. Lately, the kids have really been enjoying watching The Ladybugs' Picnic - some wonderful, old school "Sesame Street" fare.

Happy Rapture Day, y'all!

Best rapture prank ever: my neighbour put several piles of clothes out on the sidewalk (complete sets - shirts, underpants, pants, socks, shoes). Passed the afternoon chuckling at people's reactions as they walked by.

Oh I love the ladybug picnic! We were at the beach. Thought is was as good a place as any to spend our last days and then some. :)

No rapture in Paris either. It was supposed to happen in the wee hours here, so I told my husband that if Mademoiselle didn't wake us up at 3 am it meant she'd made the cut. I think that at this point I'd almost relish being among the damned if it meant I could get a full night's sleep just once.

We love the ladybugs' picnic! Have you seen they also have a new claymation version?

hahaha, parisienne, "I'd almost relish being among the damned if it meant I could get a full night's sleep just once." I hear ya, woman.

@Jac - I think I'm in love with your neighbor.

@mom2boy - The beach has got to be the ideal place for some pre-apocalyptic family fun!

@Parisienne Mais Presque - I'm with @Melba - LOL! I will have to check out TLP's new claymation version, I didn't know about that! Merci!
