10 Things That Happened In 2012 That Make Me Think The Mayans Are Right

By December 18, 2012

So this is the week we find out if the world ends again. Yeah… I don’t buy it either. BUT I have to say some things that have happened this year are SO crazy, it makes me think the world just might be ending. Or maybe I just don’t wanna live on this planet anymore. Not sure which. Here’s a look at 10 things that happened in 2012 that make me think the Mayans may be right.

Deadmau5 proposes to Kat Von D over Twitter

Who says romance is dead? Oh yeah these two and their Twitter proposal. I guess it’s the proposal this marriage will probably deserve.

Zombies IRL

So there was the guy who ate another guy’s face. The MMA fighter who ripped his manager’s heart out and ate it. The guy who ate his wife’s lips and like ten other people eating other people stories this year. That’s a trend I find more disturbing than jeggings.

This Happened

I don’t know Peaches Geldoff, I’m thinking dropped baby is more important than dropped call.

The Impending Bacon Shortage

According to the National Pig Association, a global shortage of pork and bacon is inevitable. I don’t know about you but I don’t wanna live in a world without BLTs. Ron Swanson does not approve.


Hey, I like drinking just as much as the next frat boy, but I draw the line at cheap box wine. Oh and the butt-chugging thing too. That’s just not right. Even if it’s a nice bottle of Santa Sofia Amarone della Valpolicella.

Cat Runs For Senate

A cat named Hank ran as an independent in the Virginia Senate race and it wasn’t even close to being the strangest political story of the year. It was however the most inspirational one.

Parents Name Baby Hashtag

I don’t know what’s sadder, naming your baby hashtag or not knowing how to spell ‘weighs’. Nah…it’s naming your baby hashtag. #itdoesntgetbetter

Woman Gets Her Butthole Tattooed

I can’t believe I just typed the sentence ‘Woman Gets Her Butthole Tattooed’. Ugh, I did it again. This makes forehead tats seem quaint.

People ACTUALLY Think This

Please be a troll. Please, please, please.


I just can’t even with Florida anymore. Florida shows no signs of ending its reign of terror as the most WTF state in the nation. Maybe the Mayans predicted apocalypse will end it for us?
