"It's Christmas!" said Noddy Holder, in that infamous Christmas ditty that is synonymous with 70's naiveté and West Midlands charm. Little did we know, this year Noddy re-released the single with the updated title "It's Apocalypse!" and we all joined hands and scrunched up our eyes, expecting the end of the world to occur on the 21st December, as predicted by the Mayans*.
If the end of the world doesn't happen, then we can say we anticipated that we'd make it through. The only thing we need to worry about next is falling off the fiscal cliff, but then that could well be made up by the Mayans too*.
If the end of the world does happen, then perhaps we were incorrect to underestimate the Mayans. And perhaps next time they might be a bit more considerate and finish their calendar AFTER the end of human civilisation on earth. So inconsiderate.
