This Week in Buzz: Special Rapture Edition


We have just a little over 24 hours left, if you believe Christian radio broadcaster Harold Camping, owner of Family Radio. And in case you have any doubts about our impending doom, we’d like to remind you that every cast member on Jersey Shore probably makes more money than you, bored college kids are pouring vodka directly into their eyeballs, and Oprah has said her final farewell.

In fact, we have an entire list of 50 reasons why the world is definitely ending, and BuzzFeed Founder and CEO Jonah Peretti even sent out this memo to the entire staff outlining our plans to keep the company afloat after he and other key members of staff are in heaven.

Many of us will be attending Rapture parties this weekend, and boy do we have playlists!

We have so much rapture material to get through before the rapture so we’ve put together a dedicated Rapture Feed, bringing together all of the best blasphemy in one handy page.

The seven-year old internet meme known as The Lying Down Game went viral in a big way in Australia last week where it has come to be known as Planking.
