“So what if I can’t spell Armageddon? It’s not the end of the world”

"So what if I can’t spell Armageddon? It’s not the end of the world” is a jocular one-line saying that has been printed on many images. The joke was posted on Twitter on April 3, 2010 and is from Canadian comedian Stewart Francis.

Wikipedia: Armageddon
According to the Book of Revelation, Armageddon (/ˌɑːrməˈɡɛdən/, from Ancient Greek: Ἁρμαγεδών Harmagedōn, Late Latin: Armagedōn) is the prophesied location of a gathering of armies for a battle during the end times, variously interpreted as either a literal or a symbolic location. The term is also used in a generic sense to refer to any end of the world scenario.
