Australian PM Does Joking Apocalypse Video; Proves Australia Significantly Cooler Than You

You might know Julia Gillard as the first female Prime Minister of Australia and leader of the Australian Labor Party. Or you might know her as one of the few world leaders out there who is openly atheist. You might also know her as somebody who can deliver a pretty awesome smackdown.

Ancient Mayan Murals Reveal That the World Isn’t Ending This Year After All!

One of the biggest raves ever is coming on December 21, 2012 — at least according to the beloved tin-foil hat faction of the human race. Apparently, a calendar designed by the Mayans predicted that the end of the world was coming on that very date just seven months from now, and some people just decided to run with it and take it as 100 percent truth. But now, markings on newly discovered, 1,200-year-old Mayan murals that have just been unearthed in Xultún, Guatemala might fly right in the face of all those bummer doomsday predictions. In fact, they are being interpreted as a sign that we have many more millennia ahead of us — so, yes! Mayan science fiction means that the Earth will survive to see a sequel to The Avengers. This is a glorious find, indeed!

Except Colbert actually had a lesson to teach us about why everything is wrong with campaign finance. Roseanne just has strong opinions on Twitter. Hey, maybe I should run for President.
