Top 25 tweets of about the end of the world

Surprise, we're all still here. While the Mayan calendar ended (without a bang or any fanfare, mind you) on Friday, we all went about our days as if it wasn't the end of days. From work to play and Facebook to Twitter, lots of people put their two cents in about the Armageddon-that-wasn't.

An avalanche of terrible jokes (and a few awesome ones) rolled onto social media channels, shared over and over, from end of the world confessions (Guess who shoved Regina George in front of a bus in Mean Girls? Hint: literally everyone) to collective ragging on the Mayans. Here are some of our favorite post-apocalyptic posts from the weekend.

Can we have one?

Alas, it's not Armageddon, but it certainly feels like it.  


We'll stick to the Gregorian calendar, thanks.


Nate Silver = Nostradamus. Eh? Eh?

Just please, please don't write a song about it.

Salman Rushdie made a funny!

And while tumbleweeds roll onward and the world keeps spinning, the Dude sips on a White Russian and just is.
