Tickets of Noah's Ark in fashion

The movie 2012 makes an attempt to show us the catastrophic events leading up to the worldwide disaster, and a modern version of Noah's Ark, a ship in Tibet where people will be safe. While tickets for the movie ship cost a billion Euros each, in real life they can be purchased for less than $0.5.

Chinese online shopping portal, Taobao, has several online stores selling these counterfeit tickets at 3 RMB a piece. The tickets have been popular as a new year's gift, a comical way of ensuring one's safety in the face of the 2012 Armageddon. One store in Jiangsu has sold 2,500 train and ark tickets at 3 RMB each. Another one sold 1,700 Chinese Noah's Ark passes in a month, at 2 RMB each.

This is the same information that is talked about in the movie 2012– the boarding time, which is midnight on December 21st 2012, and the boarding place, at Zhuo Ming Gu dock.. Cabin seats and ticket numbers have also been included. To make the tickets look real, some stores have introduced ticketing systems that allow the customers to enter their name, nationality and other information on their tickets.

Besides the tickets, people are queuing up to purchase other joke survival items such as earthquake first aid kits, rescue ropes, emergency medicine packages and so on. People use this innovative way to welcome 2012. What is your opinion?
