Patch Picks: End of the World

Patch Picks examines five responses to a prediction that the world will end Saturday.

Rumor (started by the Family Radio Network) has it the world is coming to an end Saturday. This week on Patch Picks, we present five responses to those predictions available to people in Clayton and Richmond Heights.

Fudgement Day
According to Facebook, May 21 is the day when all fudges must be judged. Share recipes, make fudge at home and spread the sugary joy among all the masses.

Post-Apocalypse Looting Day
The same kind of people who map out the best city escape routes in case of a zombie apocalypse are preparing to ensure that just in case Family Radio Network is right about this Saturday, the things they loved in this life won’t be wasted or left to rot when they could instead be put to good use by neighbors.

International Judgement Day Party
If you’re hoping for less looting and more celebration of lower housing costs and reduced unemployment, this group wants you to join in the celebration of staying on Earth this Saturday.

Eternal Earthbound Pets
While this service has been around for awhile, it recently increased its rates because of increased activity centered around this Saturday. It bills itself as “the next best thing to pet salvation in a post-rapture world” and promises to take care of your animals after you’re no longer here.

Post-Rapture Post
It seems like the end of days would be its own proof, but anyone who feels a need to leave behind an “I told you so” message can pay to have their last words delivered once they’re no longer here to do so in person.

The world is predicted to end the day before my birthday. Good news? Bad news?

If the world ends today, this past week of dieting will have been futile. Universal fail.
