years to play out. Here is a more fast-paced version.]

paradise. Dan Quayle briefly hovers five inches above the floor, then
collapses in a heap as a booming, disembodied voice cries, "Ha!"
8:02AM-Coffee vanishes worldwide; everyone gets cranky.
8:13AM-Taco Bell chihuahua calls a press conference to concede that he is

continue to sell briskly.
9:45AM-All car alarms on earth go off simultaneously.
10:40AM-Abyss opens, releasing foreboding cloud of black smoke and plague
of disgusting flavored sports drinks. Oceans and lakes turn to blood.

11:47AM-Sun becomes black as "sackcloth of hair", Moon becomes as blood.
12:00 NOON-Booming, disembodied voice says, "Return all seat backs and tray
tables to their upright and locked positions."

4:56PM-Calls are no longer monitored to assure quality service.
5:20PM-Jerry Seinfeld appreciates the odd little things about droughts.
6:12PM-the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse break up when Pestilence starts
dating Baby Spice.
7:16PM-Jewel dies quietly on the toilet.
9:27PM-God takes Pat Robertson out behind woodshed and kicks his ass.
10:00PM-Todays winning Lotto numbers are announced. Congrats, you won!!!!
10:42PM-Shari Lewis' head suddenly appears in place of left hand of Lamb.
11:30PM-God finally answers all the big questions (e.g., is it ever OK to
break up over the phone?).
12:00MIDNIGHT-Tied in the World Series, Boston Red Sox and Chicago Cubs meet
in the seventh game, and-with two out and the score tied in the bottom of
the ninth-the world blows up.
12:03AM-In deepest space, fleshy shreds of The Artist Formerly Known as
Prince rename themselves "Susan."
