[The really intense events leading up to Armageddon are supposed to take
years to play out. Here is a more fast-paced version.]

8:00AM- Rapture: Doors of Heaven open; earth's righteous begin to rise to
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
the Antichrist. Then he does that cute thing with his eyebrows and bulgy
eyes and people find him irresistible anyway.

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.

11:32AM-In emergency arbitration, Miller Lite is declared "less filling".

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."

12:03PM-Arrival of forces of good is covered live on CNN, tipping evil off
as to their location and ruining any chance of ambush.

1:11PM-Beeping Tamagotchi pets begin demanding human flesh.

2:46PM-Rampaging looters are surprised by the softer side of Sears.

3:18PM-Saddam Hussein take Kuwait again; U.S.  issues a statement formally
not giving a damn.

3:21PM-Holographic doves on Visa cards emerge to peck out eyes of infants
and elderly.

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."
