“My dear remaining fellow Australians, the end of the world is coming,” Australian Prime MinisterJulia Gillard said in a PSA of sorts.
Made, of course, as a spoof with a local radio’s breakfast show.
“It wasn’t Y2K, it wasn’t even the carbon price,” she said. “Whether the final blow comes from flesh eating zombies, demonic hell beasts or from the total triumph of K-pop, if you know one thing about me it is this: I will always fight for you to the very end.”
But hey, there’s a silver lining. For her, anyway: “At least this means I won’t have to do Q&A again.”
Meanwhile, NASA is here to allay our fears — and has posted FAQs detailing why the world won’t end. “Our planet has been getting along just fine for more than 4 billion years,” it reads, “and credible scientists worldwide know of no threat associated with 2012.”
