DECEMBER 21, 2012: EPISODE II: ATTACK OF THE SCONES
As December 21, 2012 patiently dragged on into mid-afternoon, the Alliance Of Woo had taken shelter in their basements or their expensive doomsday bunkers purchased from snake oil salesmen only slightly less shady than they themselves are.
Many members of the Alliance Of Woo pored over the pages of the books they'd purchased from other snake oil salesmen, or played DVDs on repeat from still other snake oil salesmen, searching for the final clues that they might have missed that would tell them what signs to be on the lookout for.
Meanwhile, everyone else on the planet, under the reasonably reliable protection of the mistress called Reality, was being responsible for their obligations and doing shit like going to work, raising their kids, and -gasp!- even finding time to spend with friends and family for some intelligent conversation over dinner and drinks!
Time was increasingly not on the side of the Alliance Of Woo…
(You're probably wondering what scones -as mentioned in the title- have to do with this, huh? Absolutely nothing, which, coincidentally, is precisely what the Mayan calendar has to do with determining the date on which this beautiful planet will be pulverized or the currently dominant species will meet an untimely demise. Odd little coincidence there, huh?)
