A Madwoman on 'Wipe Swap' Tries to Deal With the End of the World (VIDEO)

A Madwoman on 'Wife Swap' Tries to Deal With the End of the WorldHi there! And welcome to the end of the world on 'Wipe Swap' (Fri., 8PM ET on ABC). Of course it's always kind of the end of the world on 'Wife Swap,' since the show specializes in throwing together inappropriate couples, and then forcing them into knock-down, drag-out, "end of the world" type fights.

On the latest episode, husband Harry must deal with wife Dawn -- and Dawn is very concerned about the end of humanity. Specifically, Dawn is a little obsessed with the Mayan prophecy that says that the world will be destroyed in the year 2012. (By the way, if you'd like to read about how this "2012" thing is a wacky hoax that has nothing to do with anything, feel free to go here or here.)

At any rate, Dawn is worried about the end of the world. So she forces her new family to all put on life vests, and to then sit out in a inflatable raft in the yard. (Since the end of everything on this planet is something that can apparently be avoided if you just have an inflatable raft.) No one is that excited by this experiment, and Dawn even puts a life vest on the family dog. The dog then promptly runs away. "Come on!" says husband Harry. "Even [the dog] thinks it's ridiculous, for God's sake!"

It's at this point that Dawn starts to get mad, and begins ranting and yelling at Harry. Unfortunately -- during her rant -- she mispronounces the words "cataclysmic" and "apocalypse." Harry makes the mistake of telling Dawn that she can't even say these words right -- which makes Dawn even more angry.

The 2012 nuts are just the latest in a long line of crazy people spouting off about the end of the world. It's sad that there really are people out there that believe this stuff. I recently wrote about my own Apocalyptic Predaliction on my site: http://johnakkah.com/2010/06/25/the-apocalyptic-predilection/
