Mayan humor ~ and today's the day!

This bit of Mayan humor goes right along with the news that the earliest known Mayan calendar shows no hint of world's end.  Archaeologist William Saturno of Boston University said, "We keep looking for endings.  The Maya were looking for a guarantee that nothing would change.  It's an entirely different mindset."  All that is supposed to end in 2012 is one of the Mayan calendar cycles.  See Wikipedia @

This, of course, is an alternative understanding for Americans who "watched the ball drop" on many a New Year's Eve and already miss Dick Clark.

Both of those are good! I especially like the top one. I have also enjoyed the photo with the oreo cookie next to the calendar, but promising us continued life.

My daughter knows it is all wrong, but a little bit of her worries anyway. I think it helped when I pointed out it's already 12/22 in much of the world! :-)

Sheila @ Book Journey has some cute cartoons, including a different one about Dick Clark. I like the one comparing the Mayan calendar stone with an Oreo cookie.
