End of the world…still coming…

So continuing with my end of the world theme that I began, there was more news today that really made me think that the apocalypse is indeed on its way.

Ex-President’s Bush’s daughter, Jenna, is preggers.  Yup.  Spawn is on the way.  Another Bush (although this one will be called a “Bush-Hager,” perhaps?) is going to be part of this world. 

Should we be concerned?  It is truly a sign of the end of the world? I hadn’t been too concerned before, even with Godzilla making impact, but another Bush.  Wow.  I might have to start stocking up, like my fellow Houstonian who is prepping for doomsday

Further Proof That the World is Ending…

Yesterday it was Godzilla plummeting to Earth, having already wreaked havoc in Japan with the earthquake and minor tsunami.  Today…it’s giant slugs who eat houses.

No kidding.  Miami, Florida, is currently host to some Giant African Land Snails, which can grow to 10 inches long and eat the stucco from the sides of houses, like kids attacking life-sized gingerbread houses.  They are, obviously, a non-native species, and they have been there for a few years now. 

Luckily, I know what to do about it, having been one of the lucky few to have watched the awesome 1988 movie Slugs: The Movie.

So beware – as it was prophesied, the end of the world is coming, and if it isn’t Godzilla, it’s slugs.  (And if the trailer isn’t enough to convince you not to watch it, the whole movie is available online!)
