    Default FOBL Saves the World

    For those who have been too busy watching X-Factor and the Voice to pay attention to the truly important things In life, we'll start this notice by reminding folks that December 21, 2012 was to be the Mayan apocalypse, the end of a 5125 year cycle that would mark the end of the fourth world--the first three having apparently been failed attempts to boot up (kinda like the multiple versions of Shaw's World Domination Plan). Various scholars weighed in on the possible ramifications of this date, including earthquakes, hurricanes, plagues, the idea that Ayr might make a Solecismic Series, that Bruno might make a fair deal, or that the FOBL Hall of Fame might be brought back up to date.


    The Zero Hour has obviously passed, and as we can all tell nothing much happened. Some avid Facebook posters are ridiculing this whole thing in only the way Facebook posters can--generally by posting snazzy gifs with sharp-tongued phrases meant to be cute.

    The problem, it turns out, is that Q'uq'umatz (the Mayan Snake god responsible for the transitions) did actually materialize at exactly 0-dark-thirty on the fateful day, just as planned. But as he was ready to rattle his tail and set in motion all the various things that were on the Eve of Destruction agenda, he happened to--by happenstance--come upon the FOBL website, whereupon he is quoted as saying, "Crap, it's 2044. Who the hell forgot to set my alarm clock?" And then went back to Mayan god hibernation for another 5125 years.


    So, dear FOBL, please take this notice as the official "Thank You" from the rest of the world. We wouldn't be here without you.
