Okay, okay, okay. So, some of you may have noticed that the world as we know it did NOT end on August 18, 1999.
One of these "Noticers" was the almost-certainly-not-a-Hindu-god "Krishna" from San Francisco, who writes:
Hey, what happened? There was a cool little earthquake here on Tuesday, but that's about it.Oh yeah? Well let's see YOU conjure up an earthquake, retorts CRISWELL from his laughing chair in the Great Beyond!
To tell the truth, I forgot all about it.(So, apparently, did CRISWELL.)
Maybe Criswell didn't mean the actual end of the world, but the "end of the world as we know it"Don't forget the Julian/Gregorian confusion ... you never know what system the great CRISWELL was using!
CRISWELL is never wrong, just misunderstood!
I, for one, am rejoicing that I have a reprieve in which to watch more taped episodes of El Gran Juego de la Oca!
Remember: Criswell himself wrote: "I invite the reader to "keep record" of my predictions and see for himself whether these things come to pass" (Your Next Ten Years, p. 11).
And that's exactly what I was going to do in this space. But the good folks at The Onion beat me to it. So, screw it!
I mean, hooray! That is, now I can devote my energies to other pointless endeavors.
Meanwhile, you can still see the original Criswell's Apocalypse page, if you missed it ...
