According to the Mayan calender, the end of the world is near. After you stock up on canned goods and batteries, don’t forget to RSVP on Facebook.


Shane Jones, of Ann Arbor, Mich., has created a public Facebook event scheduled for Dec. 21.

“And even if nothing happens, it will still be worth a laugh,” Jones wrote in the event description. “This might, or might not, be the biggest thing since sliced bread so don’t let your friends miss this possibly life changing experience. I want to everyone on Facebook at this here shindig so don’t disappoint.”

Jones’ event has caught the attention of Laughing Squid and more than 600 people who have RSVP’ed as “going.”
