That’s a Wrap, Sure

Wait… we’re all still here? N-nothing happened?

No earthquakes? No torrents of fire? No express elevator to Heaven?

B-but the guy on the radio said it was guaranteed! I was all prepared to go!

I feel like my whole world is ending because my whole world isn’t ending.

Sender-inner Peter notes that he thought he was staking out an owl’s nest, but this raccoon appeared instead. Perhaps the owl just (pause for effect) disappeared.


  1. It’s safe now. Come out…

  2. Fird Birfle says:

    ….Cue Glinda / Good Witch and the Munchkins:

    “Come out, come out, whereever you are,
    and meet the young lady who fell from the stars….” ;)

  4. JohnnyJohnny says:

    Wow! Thanks for posting the vidi. I remember when this came out, I was pretty young, and it seemed so forbidden, so radical as to be subversive.

    There was a lot of really interesting music going on down town (NYC) in those days; some real scene-changing stuff.

  5. *Flashing back to CBGB bathrooms* 8O

  6. Fird Birfle says:

    With concern:
    “Let it go, Theresa. Let it go, dear.” ;)

  7. Now she only eats guitars. :mrgreen:

  8. Lewis n' Clark says:

    Hah – I’ve been in CBGB bathrooms, too! (wait, did I just type that?)

  9. Malinki says:

    Bah. That wasn’t right. Trying that again in 3…2…1…

  10. Malinki says:

    Nevermind, just follow the link, I need sleepies.

  11. Due to an unexplained massive outbreak of hernias in certain communities, Biblical scholars were sent back to the original Greek sources, and discovered a crucial error of translation. The word was “Rupture.” :evil:

  12. bookmonstercats says:

    hee hee

  13. who doesn’t like “hee hee”?

  14. Someone didn’t like that? Oh come on! :P

  15. Theresa Can we just note that you are AWESOME! :)

  16. (The Original) Mel says:

    What naughty rapscallion is thumbsdowning you? Why I eyes ya.

  17. Note also that someone is objecting to my objection to their objection. Ladies and Gentlemen, we are in a Hall of Mirrors. :P

  18. bagoguts says:

    Theresa – you are priceless!!

  19. *curtsys*

  20. aley come out…na…cutie

  21. Great photo series.

    Maybe Rocky just went back to his room to read Gideon’s Bible?

  23. earlybird1 says:

    “Apocalycious” – ROFL!! :D

  24. Next stop: December 23rd, 2012. keep those Apocalycious freeze-dried diner handy!

    As P. T. Barnum used ta say,”There’s a sucker born every minute” ;-)

  25. Its actually December 21,2012.

  26. bob drummond says:

    I’m glad that it did not end yet. I am tired people trying to tell us that the world is going to end at a certain date. Jesus ,Himself, said that “no man knows the hour nor the date except the Father…” and He ain’t talking! When it happens it will ” come like a thief in the night…” Please read Rev.3:10 and Luke 21:36. Carefully!
    Thank you.

  27. Queen of Dork says:

    Thank you!! :)

  28. LyndaLu says:

    Thank you, Bob Drummond!

  29. warrior rabbit says:

    The shape of his hole looks like a strawberry. Or maybe I should just eat some breakfast, already.

  30. (The Original) Mel says:

    “It’s that owl guy again, Ethel.”

  31. cellarmouse says:

    are pictures reverse chronology? …. it’s kinda funny if yer takin a pichur of a empty hole and that little head pops up…

  32. Not That Mike The Other Mike says:

    I don’t know for sure, but I think you’re correct.

  33. yep, they are reversed – i watched the empty tree hole, waiting for an owl, and Rocky slowly appeared – it was an adorable surprise :)

  34. 260Oakley says:

    Rocky finds that his search for the Rapture has been trunkated. Apparently he was barking up the wrong tree.

  35. But he was willing to go out on a limb, for the seeds of his beLEAFS run deep.,

  36. In other words, they are deeply rooted.

  37. victoreia says:

    Yay! A Beatles ear-worm!

  38. I wonder how they’ll explain why the world didn’t end. A mistake in their calculations, perhaps? That’s how they always explain it.

  39. The prophecy was right but the interpretation was wrong. That’s another biggie (and one I find very confusing).

    Hey, we got another day of NTMTOM – that’s a good thing, right??

  40. Kallisto says:

    Yup, a very good thing! *nods*

  41. Marshwiggle says:

    Loving the hovertext on the second picture, and the url! Bwahahaha!

  42. Fird Birfle says:

    YAY a Tolkien screenname!!!!

  43. Marshwiggle says:

    While I appreciate the sentiment, and hate to nitpick, “Marshwiggle” is actually a term of C.S. Lewis’s invention…from the Chronicles of Narnia (“The Silver Chair”). But now that you mention it, “Baggins” would also be an excellent choice! :D

  44. Nasssssssty Bagginses!

  45. Bat-Snake says:

    They stole our precious!

  46. kodalai says:

    We hates it! We hates it forever!

  47. victoreia says:

    And he’s a respectable Marshwiggle!

    (Until he’s had a few too many…..then he turns into a respeck-o-biggle…..)

  48. earlybird1 says:

    Yes, but I don’t think you are as morose as Puddleglum. :D

  49. victoreia says:

    Although Eeyore might give Puddleglum a run for his money!

  50. Fird Birfle says:


  51. Well thats what you get for listening for a fundamentalist. ANd maybe you also get my trash can.

  52. April's NaNa says:

    “Barking” up the wrong tree! Snerk! Oakley – trunkated – double snerk! Oh and cute little bandito in said tree!!

  53. Owl Be seeing you in all the old Familiar places.

  54. Where is Hon Glad?

  55. he’s been MIA for awhile now.

  56. Like the proverbial karma chameleon, he comes and goes.

  57. Lewis n' Clark says:

    so, a little etiquette help here…now that the Rapture has been “postponed”, do I hafta return all of these goggies and kittehs that I….uh…saved?

  58. bob drummond says:

    Yes you do !

  59. now you see me now you don,t.
