(CBS) - We're not rapture experts or anything, but it seems every time someone is screaming about Judgement Day and the Apocalypse, that someone is a man. That's not to say that women don't say plenty of crazy things, just not this particular brand of crazy.

Take most recent case in point Harold Camping and his army of branded vans. According to the Christian broadcaster, the first day of "end of days" is May 21, 2011. Then God will destroy the Earth five months after -- October 21, 2011 to be exact.

Well naturally we though that was kind of funny. But we weren't the only ones. Folks in the Twitterverse are having a blast making jokes in the short time they have left. Check out our favorite rapture tweets.
