Y2K Survival Tips

With the new millennium nearly upon us, here are some handy tips to help prepare you for what may lie ahead:

  • Stock up on canned goods, paper bags, packages of Jell-O, small cardboard boxes and Reader's Digest back issues, or simply move in with an elderly person.
  • Memorize Lou Bega's "Mambo No. 5" now, so you can continue to enjoy it after there are no radio stations.
  • Learn a valuable skill, such as masonry, woodcutting or trench-digging. These trades will be much sought-after in the coming Empire Of The Beast-King.
  • Stock up on Hostess Fruit Pies. This may not keep you alive for long, but while it does... oh, baby.
  • Decide now whether you want to focus on raping or pillaging when the end comes.
  • Learn basic survival skills... the Tae-Bo® way.
  • Develop the ability to convert sunlight into energy using the chlorophyll in your body.
  • Build yourself a moonshine still. Actually, this is a good idea almost any time.
  • Integrate yourself into sewer-based C.H.U.D. tribes now, before they think you're just jumping on the post-apocalyptic bandwagon.
  • Don't stand close to a computer at midnight on New Year's Eve. It may emit showers of sparks and say, "Error... Error," in a mechanical monotone.
  • When the apocalypse comes, plan to rely solely on your good looks, amiable manner and pleasant telephone voice.
  • In charge of a fringe church or militia? This may be the big break you've been waiting for.
  • When defending your food piles, remember to aim for the center of the face.
  • Hot chicks want nothing more than to survive the Y2K crisis. Telling them you have a shelter and food supply will be all you need to have a sexxxy new millennium.
  • If disaster strikes, it's God's wrath--quote the Old Testament. But if nothing happens, God is merciful--quote the New Testament.
