How to Prepare for Doomsday

This funny puppet video will get you ready in case the Mayans were correct

As you've probably heard, tomorrow (Dec. 21, 2012) is the day that the Mayans allegedly predicted as the end of the world. While NASA and others are busy trying to debunk all the myths, the end of the world mania is reaching its fever pitch.


This includes some pretty funny videos - here's one from my favorite puppet show - Glove and Boots - telling viewers what they need to do to prepare for Doomsday with a very nice song and dance.

If you want to try and get through today and tomorrow with some other materials for your social network feed, check out some other tips:

Tip #2: Post a bunch of funny photos on your Facebook stream. Here are some of our favorites:
