The world can breathe a sigh of relief today as archeologist Dr Hart Fardley has discovered, deep in the jungles of Central America, a long-lost 2013 Mayan Calendar.
Experts had feared that the fact that the previous Mayan calendar ended at Dec 21, 2012, signaled that the end of the earth was imminent. Speculation is rife as to why the only previously known Mayan calendar ended when it did.
Among the reasons historians postulate are
- The Mayan calendar maker ran out of calendar-making supplies at that date.
- Creation of the calendar was running behind and Dec 21, 2012 was as far as they got by press time.
- The calendar creative department was unionized and 12/21/12 was as far as the calendar was developed by 5:00 on the Friday before a long weekend. During the weekend, the Spanish invaded and wiped out the entire population before work could continue.
- The 2013 calendar was being prepared by a separate government department and was lost in shipping before it could be joined to the previously finished work.
