Failed Prophet Harold Camping Moved to Nursing Home

Illustration for article titled Failed Prophet Harold Camping Moved to Nursing Home

Last month, 89-year-old apocalypse forecaster Harold Camping suffered a stroke, likely related to the cumulative stress of having failed to deliver on big rapture promises.

His family now confirms that the Bay Area evangelist was moved into an assisted care facility for rehabilitation. Meanwhile, the fate of his radio show — which has gone into reruns since the stroke — is up in the air. Perhaps Camping could use this quiet time to more finely hone his soothsaying abilities, starting with a far less ambitious campaign that warns fellow nursing home residents of the impending "FISHSTICK WEDNESDAY: The cafeteria guarantees it."
