Commercializing the Mayan Apocalypse?

Courtesy of an e-mail from an anonymous reader, I came across a Web site offering a fun perspective on the allegedly-impending 2012 apocalypse.  They offer – of all things – an End Times Gift Basket!

It contains all sorts of useful goodies, including (but not limited to):

  • A bottle of Jack Daniel’s sour mash Tennessee whisky;
  • A ‘fine cigar’;
  • A Mayan Long Count Calendar (reportedly suitable for framing);
  • Gourmet snacks (presumably to make the end times taste better).

It also contains a so-called Survival Manual, including such helpful chapters as:

  • How to Say “We’re Screwed” in 10 Tongues
  • Breathing After the Yellowstone Super Volcano Erupts
  • Preparing Roadkill
  • Nuclear Blast Photo-Op

All in all (apart from repentance, prayer and fasting) I can’t think of a better way to face the apocalypse – well fed, agreeably drunk, and possessing all sorts of new-found insights about how to make my imminent demise more enjoyable!
