So much for the May 21 Rapture

If you’re reading this, then you either missed the Rapture or, because we’re all still here, it just didn’t happen. Sorry, Harold Camping. We have to wait a little while longer.

If Facebook feeds are any indication, everyone finds the false-start Rapture pretty funny—i.e. “Happy Raptur ...” and “Post-Rapture BBQ about to begin.” Cathy Grossman writes that today has turned into a day of joking about “Apocalypse No.”

The joke appears to be on Harold Camping and his earnest followers. After all, if you’re reading this, you’re still standing squarely on earth, not off with the angels where the true believers were supposed to be flown in a flash at 6 p.m.

Cathy links to a few good jokes and one-liners.

What are your post-Rapture plans?
