>> Jon: WELCOME BACK TO THE SHOW.

NOW, IF YOU LOOKED AT THE CALENDAR TODAY OR TALKED WITH ANYONE, YOU KNOW THAT IT'S A

VERY SPECIAL DAY.

12/12/12.

IT IS THE DATA THE MAYANS PROF SEIZED AS THE BEGINNING OF THE SHIFT THAT CULMINATION ON THE

END OF THE WORLD ON 12/21 OR SO I READ IN NEW AGE [BLEEPED]

MONTHLY.

[LAUGHTER]

THE CRYSTALS ARTICLE IS SOMEWHAT CONTROVERSIAL.

DISREGARDING THE FACT THAT THE MAYANS WERE CLEARLY NOT THE BEST AT PREDICTING WHEN CIVILIZATION

WOULD END, MAYANS, HOW SCARED SHOULD WE REALLY BE?

WHAT COULD HAPPEN BETWEEN NOW AND DECEMBER 21st THAT COULD TRIGGER GLOBAL ANNIHILATION.

>> NORTH KOREA TODAY ENTERED THE SPACE AGE, APPARENTLY PUTTING A SATELLITE INTO ORBIT.

[SPEAKING NORTH KOREAN]

[CHEERING]

>> PEOPLE IN THE CAPITAL SEEMED TO WELCOME THE NEWS.

[LAUGHTER]

>> Jon: SORRY ABOUT THAT OUTDOOR JUBILANT CROWD, DIDN'T SEEM QUITE RIGHT, LIKE THE FACT

THAT THERE'S NOBODY OUTSIDE THAT'S NOT IN THE CROWD, BUT IT'S NOT A VERY BIG CROWD AND

THEY ALL SEEM TO BE AROUND THE SAME AGE AND THEY APPEAR TO HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR SOMEONE TO TELL

THEM TO COMMENCE WITH THE JUNE LENS, PERHAPS AT GUNPOINT.

IT MUST BE NICE TO BE ABLE TO GATHER A GROUP WHO CAN BE FORCED TO CHEER FOR YOU NO MATTER WHAT.

[CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]

SUCK ON, THAT KIM JUNG.

NOT THAT I HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT THAT WOULD BE LIKE, BUT LET ME TRY IT WITH THIS CROWD.

HEY, EVERYBODY, TONIGHT'S FIFTH NIGHT OF HANUKKAH.

[CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]

THAT WAS KIND OF FUN.

NOT YOU, THEM.

GIVE THEM CHANCE.

HEY, EVERYBODY.

I'VE GOT A POTATO WE CAN SHARE.

[CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]

YOU KNOW, I'M STARTING TO NOT TRUST THEIR RESPONSE.

HEY, EVERYBODY.

I'VE GOT CHLAMYDIA.

[CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]

[LAUGHTER]

SEEMS SOMEWHAT SCORNFUL.

BY THE WAY, SOURCES SAY THE UNITED STATES WAS TAKEN BY SURPRISE BY THE MISSILE LAUNCH.

WELL, FUNNY STORY, HERE'S WHAT WE WERE UP TO JUST BEFORE.

>> TODAY
