Massive Steamy Crack in Iceland Solicits Sophomoric Humor from X – Twitchy
We know the end of the world is scheduled for sometime soon. There are wars, rumors of wars, earthquakes, volcanoes, dogs and cats sleeping together, and mass hysteria. With that being said, some of these symptoms are prompting inappropriate jokes and general merriment. (Hey, if the world’s ending, why NOT make it fun?)
It all started with giant cracks opening in Iceland as a precursor to a possible volcanic eruption.

By all means…. Get CLOSER to the giant volcanic crack. https://t.co/MfubJOffmQ

I’m not a volcanologist, but wouldn’t you want to get as far away from that as possible?

Most of them could be filed in one category, sophomoric. This is X, so you have to expect it, especially when the headline makes it so easy.
Every time *I* film a massive steamy crack I get arrested for voyeurism https://t.co/i6Mpj4lvM7

Of course, after a few hours in the sauna, anyone’s crack would be a bit steamy, right?
Movie references came in droves as well.

There is, of course, the obvious movie.
Everyone just walking around it. Like has no one seen Dante’s Peak or Volcano? pic.twitter.com/OqJgrfZavw

We had to have a bit of fun today. We certainly are praying for the people of Iceland and hope that everything works out alright for them.
Seeing the power of geologic forces at work is awe-inspiring and somewhat scary if we’re being completely honest.
