Jersey Shore star Snooki seems to think that the economy is bad because "2012 is coming." Does the starlet have the right idea? Are things going to hell in a hand basket because people are fearful of solar flares, tsunamis, and mass chaos in 2012?
"The economy is really scary, because 2012 is coming," Snooki tells The Wall Street Journal in a recent interview. "I feel like the first thing that's going to happen... is a blackout and then everyone freaks out and the world goes crazy. So hopefully, Obama will take care [of the economy] before 2012."
It's doubtful that even Obama will be able to save the economy before 2012. The most likely scenario is that things will get worse as 2012 approaches and more and more people become afraid that the end of the world is coming. The Mayan prophecy that the end will be on December 21, 2012 is quite different from a preacher saying the end is coming. As a result, more people believe that the world is in for one heck of a ride in 2012. Could they be right?
Snooki may have a point. Though she may be loud and drunk on most episodes of the Jersey Shore, the pint-sized star could be pretty accurate on this one. Oddly enough, she hasn't spent much of the millions she has earned on the hit reality show. Is she saving up for her own Doomsday shelter? She may seem stupid and vain, but when it comes to the end of the world and saving herself and her family, it wouldn't be surprising if she is saving her money for when she'll really need it.
