Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi gave birth to her first child this week, and many Boston residents signaled this event as a real sign that the apocalypse is coming in 2012.
To be fair, it’s not only in Boston where people believe this. It’s been a popular sentiment to share that one of TV’s biggest train wrecks would bring a child into the world and simultaneously signal the end of it.
Here’s 9 Boston reps who took to Twitter to join in on the fear-mongering now that Snooki has produced a child. Is her childbirth going to make you believe those pesky Mayans and their mysterious prophecies a little more?
How is @snooki in labor if her antichrist baby was reportedly due on Doomsday? Is the world ending earlier than expected?—
