Scary got his wish

My friend Scary has been predicting the apocalypse his whole life. Volcanoes, black holes, the mysterious Planet X colliding with Earth, and yes—pandemic.

He didn’t predict a heatwave, but he says it falls under the ambit of “apocalyptic climate change.”

Now he’s pretty sure we’re all going to die. It got up to 45 C (114 F) in the house yesterday, and today will probably be the same.

We had to put the gerbils in the basement. Otherwise they were gonna die.

But Scary says we’re ALL gonna die.

“Told you, stupid.”
