Welcome to End Of Days, our new daily post that will point out one current event or story we are fairly certain proves that the Mayans were right and it is all about to end. So enjoy it while it lasts folks.

Did anyone catch Today this morning? If so you might understand why they are falling behind Good Morning America in the ratings, and it seems to have nothing to do with the hosts. No, instead it may have something to do with the producers, specifically whichever one thought it would be a good idea to devote half of the morning show to a running gag that mocked sexual harassment. Really guys?

Now we were in now way offended by the segment, well other than the fact that it was pointless and not at all funny, but anyone who has ever been sexually harassed in the workplace probably has a far, far different take.

Apparently, new host Willie Geist gave Matt Lauer a tap on the rear during the show earlier this week, and, well, that’s about it. We watched the exchange in slow motion a million times, got confessionals from Matt and Willie we assume were meant to be humorous and the show even brought in National Investigative Correspondent Jeff Rossen to go over the facts as if it were a real case.

We are unsure whose idea this was, but we have a pretty strong feeling there is going to be some major, major backlash. And, again, who okayed this on a national program?

The Mayans were right, the end is near.
