If the world really does end on the 21st, there’s only one thing to do:
Eat chocolate. And drink it.
From chocolate-based cocktails (And handcrafted margaritas. And a shitload of different Mexican beers). Because the Mayans were the first people to eat chocolate, and yes, this is an indisputable fact. Feel bad about indulging in a special menu of Latin flavors and traditional Mayan dishes? Forget penance, just write down your penultimate sins on paper and slip them into the “Confession Box,” and The Painted Burro will exonerate you before the world blows up. Now you can get back to playing Mexican Bingo guilt-free. BINGO.
