Onion: Americans Woefully Unprepared For Apocalypse

Do You Even Know Where Your Spiked Leather Chaps and Arm Harpoon Are Located?

More troubling news from The Onion:
"Our survey of households in seven U. S. regions demonstrated that few citizens have bothered to equip themselves with fireproof suits and extinguishers to deal with volcanic upheaval, solar flares, or the Lord's purifying flame," Malthusian Institute director James Olheiser said. "Almost no one is prepared for a sudden shift in the Earth's polarity or the eating of the Sun and moon by evil wolves Skol and Hati during Ragnarok."

Olheiser added: "All in all, America gets an 'F' for end-of-the-world preparedness."
You'd think with everyone on the dole looking for temp jobs on Craig's List, they would have the time to dig out their personalized doom bunker. Perhaps, the prophetic movies coming out from Hollywood in the future (Terminator Salvation and 2012) will raise public awareness. But, not to fear! The Sniper and this bleg have got your back for properly preparing for all possible Doomsday scenarios.

They can't be referring to me. In the event of an impending asteroid strike, rogue zombies in the streets, or the Rapture, my survival kit is a gun and your address Nixon.

The near future I think will be more like "Repo Man". See if you can find a copy and check it out.

Nixon said...

Yeah, SR, we're all in this together.

DaveC, long time no see. But give me a little credit, I already own a copy of Repo Man! In the near future, I hope to drive a Chevy Malibu with alien corpses in the trunk.

Problem is you're just as much a believer in the 2nd amendment as I am. We might have to pool resources, since the firefight for your water filter and MREs might be counter productive.
