Mocking Armageddon

The impending apocalypse becomes a topic surrounded by humor instead of anxiety

Implications - Whether because of religious beliefs or scientific facts, different portions of the population seem to prep for the apocalypse every few years. Since the last alleged end of days on December 21st, 2012, pop culture has taken to looking at the supposed apocalypse with a more lighthearted eye. This, combined with a spike in Armageddon-focused entertainment such as The Walking Dead, has turned doomsday into a humorous topic.
