Bulletproof Backpacks For Kids [The Apocalypse]

Everyday until December 21, 2012 we will count down to the end with a sign of the apocalypse. It’s like that movie The Number 23 (except actually good), once you see the signs – they’re everywhere! [These are just jokes, folks!]

Mother Jones reports that body armor company, Amendment II, has tripled their sales in bulletproof backpacks for kids. The president of the company, Derek Williams, said, “Basically, there’s three models. A SwissGear that’s made for teens, and we’ve got an Avengers and a Disney Princess backpack for little kids. I can’t go into exact sales numbers, but basically we tripled our sales volume of backpacks that we typically do in a month—in one week.”

The fact that these have become a necessity, the fact that this isn’t even in poor taste, the fact that this makes sense given recent U.S. history is a clear sign of the apocalypse. Tragic. Bummer.
