LA Survivalist Stockpiles Condiments, Turns Away Professional Clowns

Mayan apocalypse or no Mayan apocalypse, the organizer of the Los Angeles Survival Community did not want LA Times reporter Gale Holland using his last name. That’s because although Tony never personally bought into all the December 21, 2012 guff, he firmly believes that a super-volcano or earthquake could one day trigger the mother of all local TV newscast storm watches. And when that happens, the naysayers will be hungry.

Holland paid a visit to Tony’s extremely well-stocked San Fernando Valley stucco HQ. There she found lots of mayonnaise and another critical condiment:

A row of barbecue sauce jars takes up one shelf. “We want to make sure food tastes good, with the different wildlife we might be eating,” Tony explained.

The Los Angeles Survival Community currently has 65 members, some of whom reportedly did believe today was going to be a very bad Friday. And to all prospective new members, a word of warning: you must possess a tangible post-doomsday “skill set.” That’s why, for example, a professional clown who wanted in was turned down by Tony. Read Holland’s full piece here.
