There’s been a lot of talk about the world ending tomorrow. Assuming that’s not going to happen, Gizmodo wants to prank Rapture believers by “Rapture bombing,” a flash-mob-like activity that involves strewing old clothes around town and making them look like their owners simply vanished into the abyss. Our spin on it?  Once the joke’s over, recover the garments and donate them to charity. Since (presumably) the Apocalypse isn’t nigh, wasting an opportunity to give to those in need would be the real sin. If practical jokes are your jam, Gizmodo will be featuring the best Rapture-bomb snapshots on its site, with prizes for its favorites. (Tweet your pics using the hashtag #rapturebomb.) So what do you think about the Rapture bomb to come: offensive or high-larious?

So tell us, is "Rapture bombing" haute or not?
