End of The World

The Mayan calendar ends 12-21-2012. Does this mean no 2013 and the end of mankind?

Seeking answers, I built a time machine. I donned a Mayan costume, went inside my machine, and set the switches for 900 AD, the Mayan era. Seconds later, I found myself in a large Mayan village.

I spotted a bunch of guys standing outside what might've been a corner bar. "Hey," I asked, "how come your final calendar ends on 12-12-2012?"

"What the hell are you talking about?" one asked. "Why would we stop making calendars? They're big business around here. Must be somebody's idea of a joke."

That's when I spotted what looked like a temple. Stepping inside, I saw Mayan priests eating human hearts and drinking blood from freshly sacrificed bodies.

I figured they'd know for sure about the Mayan's final calendar. When I asked about their final calendar and the significance of the date 12-21-2012, they rolled on the floor laughing. When they gained their composure, the priest with the biggest bunch of feathers in his headpiece said, "Those are the winning numbers from our last Powerball lottery before our Emperor declared lotteries illegal, forever."

Phew! What a relief!
