It’s been a few weeks since I’ve written about any new signs of that onrushing Apocalypse, so I foolishly thought things might be getting better.

Let’s see here. Roman Catholic bishops in Wisconsin are urging their parishioners not to bring weapons TO CHURCH, now that a new law permits state residents to carry concealed firearms and electric weapons such as stun guns or tasers.

Uh-oh. Does it SOUND like it’s getting better?

I mean, states have been competing to pass the nuttiest weapons laws recently. There was the Florida law limiting what doctors can say to their patients about guns, and both Utah and Arizona voted to create official state firearms.

Maine lawmakers voted to legalize switchblade knives, but only for one-armed residents, while Ohio approved a law allowing folks to carry guns into  bars.

What’s this-here doohickey for?

Blog Guy, I could use some of your famous career advice.

My mom gave me a glossy brochure entitled, “The Glamorous Field of Dismantling Old Nuclear Bombs,” and I signed up for their training course.

It’s real interesting, but I wondered what you thought of that career path?

What’s wrong with this picture?

Blog Guy, I’ve been seeing photos of well-armed rebels in Yemen in recent days, and I notice a lot of swollen cheeks. Are those plucky lads in need of major dental care?

No, don’t worry about that. These guys are just getting stoned on a leaf called qat.

So what’s the worst that could happen?

Sarge, if it’s okay with you, I’m gonna take a little cigarette break.

Okay Lonnie, there’s not much goin’ on here right now. Say, are you just gonna stand that rocket-propelled grenade up on end like that?

Look at the scythe of that knife!

Honey, I’m goin’ shoppin’ downtown. You want anything?

I sure do, Earl. We need skim milk, tuna fish, Hostess Ding Dongs, and darn, there was something else…

Oh yeah, daggers! We’ve got some birthdays coming up and daggers make great gifts.

Guys, listen up! We’ve captured some sort of depot and bunker that belonged to Gaddafi!

This is a great victory for us, but we need to sort through it. Lamar, you keep your squad here and make a list of everything you find.

We can fix up this grenade, good as new!

Blog Guy, I’m a recent college graduate who needs career advice. I picked up a colorful brochure entitled “The Exciting Field of Refurbishing Rocket-Propelled Grenades,” and I wondered if I should look into that.

A lot of grads are asking me that these days. It looks like RPG Refurbishment is attracting entry-level folks at a rapid pace.

Are they high-caliber lawmakers, or what?

Those signs of the onrushing Apocalypse that I like to chronicle here are coming so fast I can barely keep track of them these days.
