Scientists have unanimously concluded there is no cause for alarm.
There will be no Mayan apocalypse--or Mayageddon as it is more affectionately known--on December 21 resulting in the end of the world.
Spokesman for the scientific community Harry Johnson said, "Astronomers and archaeologists have exhaustively studied the legend of Rikitivitavi, the two-headed Mayan deity who is the overlord of Mayan two-headed deities, and we have unanimously concluded there is a major flaw in the Mayan calendar. We all know that 2012 is a leap year and the Mayan calendar does not account for this. After the correction is accounted for, we believe the world will not come to an end on December 21 but on December 22 or 23--whichever comes first."
A Mayan spokesman could not be reached for comment.
This will mark the first time the world has come to an end since January 1, 2000 when it was destroyed by Y2K.
Following Mayageddon, the world is not scheduled to come to another end until January 1, 2013 when the United States falls off a fiscal cliff.
