DECEMBER 21, 2012: EPISODE III: REVENGE OF THE MYTH
As December 22, 2012 began its slow, predictable scrawl across the land and December 21, 2012 passed gently and without significant incident into history, it was apparent to the Alliance Of Woo that the mistress called Reality had -surprise, surprise!- once again trumped the latest trendy apocalypse.
However, the Alliance Of Woo, in their sheer pigheadedness and unabashed arrogance, refused to accept the terms of surrender offered them by Reality. Instead, they -as their ilk has always done throughout recorded human history- began to formulate all manner of backpedaling, spin doctoring, misdirection and excuses to explain away their latest failure to predict jack shit.
The Alliance Of Woo even went so far as to begin to secretly collude with the snake oil salesmen to invent yet another future date of assured doom for humanity, thereby preserving the legacy of the Mayan calendar myth. The Alliance Of Woo knew that it would be necessary to select a date that was far enough away that they could collaborate with the snake oil salesmen in profiteering from the irrational fears of others, but not so distant as to seem irrelevant to the lives of those with the irrational fears.
However, you may rest assured that wherever and whenever the Alliance Of Woo rears its serpentine head, the mistress called Reality will be present to slap the Alliance Of Woo right upside said misguided head. Sooner or later, the Alliance Of Woo will undoubtedly collapse upon itself under the weight of its own unsustainable bullshit and perhaps then all peoples can adopt a sane and rational approach to life that works in harmony with Reality instead of in opposition to her.
