What do you get when you mix a zealous Christian, 12 blow-up dolls, and a toga party? It's just too strange, but it might have been the rapture for one woman...

I can't tell you how many times this week I've been forwarded that 'news story' from people thinking it's real. The account has got so many chronologic and logistic problems I can't believe it duped as many people as it did.

(In the spirit of this thread) It's time for a post superficially related to the topic, allowing for the author to relate a personal experience:

Reminds me of the time my girlfriend's extended (and extremely religious) family forwarded her a word for word copy of this.

And they seriously believed it too....I fell out of my chair when she read their added comments on the bottom:

"...we must protect children from this evil..."

Those blow-up dolls must have looked mighty life like.
It may be time to give inflatable girlfriends another chance.

I fell for this one completely. It seems so plausible!
