HCGJ is clearly in the end of days. The rapture has reduced the forum's numbers. A good many have been transfigured and rendered hideous as monstrous examples of what happens when we get crossways with the one, true admin of this creation. Seas boiled. Moon turned to blood. Tags were vaporized with little warning. It's been a good apocalypse so far.
So, I'm guessing that the d-man and gennation returning represents some kind of harrowing end-times plague. Something just shy of horsemen (Bucky?) and whatnot. Let me know when we get to the scouring of the Shire.
