Well, Jazz Pickles, these last few years of blogging have been an incredible ride. I’ve had such fun sharing my thoughts, ideas, photos, and cartoons with you and your responses have been a great inspiration to me. But all good things must come to an end and this is my last post ever.
I am sorry if this distresses or disappoints you but soon you won’t care. Once the world ends (sometime tomorrow) we’ll all be thrust into oblivion and nothing will matter. As Mark Twain once said, “I was dead for billions of years before I was born and it didn’t inconvenience me in the slightest.” I take great comfort in that idea.
Here, for your last minute amusement, are two of my cartoons about the Maya Apocalypse. (Yes, I know the calender depicted is Aztec, but cartoons are about using common vernacular to get the joke across, not accuracy.) You may notice this first one is from 2009. It seems the Mayas are not the only ones who had predictive abilities.
The second cartoon is based on the assumption that if the world does not end on December 21st, the Mayas will be disappointed. If it does happen, however, every other religion will be disappointed that their version of a world-crushing, torturous apocalypse that causes the suffering, misery and death of billions of nonbelievers wasn’t true.
Most people find it tough to be wrong, though I don’t mind it so much. I’ve not been right in my life often enough to have developed a taste for it.
Happy oblivion, Jazz Pickles!
