Darrel Bristow-Bovey Contemplates Our Impending Doom

Darrel Bristow-Bovey’s third column for Random House Struik, “This is how the world ends – not with a bang but a can of tuna”:

So the Mayan apocalypse is now only days away, and I still haven’t laid in my stocks of canned tuna. Well, no, let me not be an enfrightened scare-monger: I do have a couple of cans in the cupboard, the swanky kind with their own handy pull-tabs so that I won’t need to carry a can-opener with me when I wonder out into the colour-drained post-apocalypto wasteland with a shopping cart and a kid and a loaded gun, which is the part I’m mainly looking forward to, except for the kid, but I’ll probably have one of them for lunch. One of the cans of tuna, I mean, not the kid. Say, tuna doesn’t have carbs, does it?
