Friday Funny: Apocalypse Tourism

Your probably heard of ecotourism -- responsible tourism to natural areas. Apocalypse tourism celebrates the the end of the world on December 21, 2012, and Mexico's tourism board has the event locked up.

The Maya 'Long Count' calendar predicts the end of the world on December 21, 2012. Mexico's tourism campaign, branded 'Mundo Maya 2012', is expected to attract 52 million visitors to five states that correspond to the Maya World over the next 12 months.

"According to the official Cancun website, large ceremonial centers including the ruins of Tulum, Palenque and Chichen have been prepping for the arrival of thousands of expected apocalypse tourists."

At least you'll only have to book a fare one way.
