Top historians and sociologists around the world unanimously agreed Monday that the decline of Western civilization was complete as Marvel Comics character Deadpool appeared on the cover to the latest Entertainment Weekly magazine. The academics concluded that Western civilization had reached what they called "rock bottom" coinciding exactly with the appearance of Deadpool, who was created by Rob Liefeld and is best known for stealing jokes about Bea Arthur from the 1994 Brendan Frasier film Airheads, on the cover of the pop culture magazine.

"We knew this moment was coming for a long time, because Deadpool has been increasing in popularity," explained Professor Thaddeus T. Puffinbottoms, lead researcher at the prestigious Institute for Cultural Studies and Superhero Comics, a libertarian think tank. "But with the discovery that Ryan Reynolds in a Deadpool suit giving the "thumbs up" on the Comic Con issue of EW, it's pretty clear that we've reached the end of a long decline from which we, as a society, will never recover."

Puffinbottoms said that Westerners should consider finding a new civilization that is on the upswing, such as China, whose Deadpool-like character, 白痴面具谁使喧宾夺主迪克笑话, sells comparatively few comics each year and is "a long time away from starring in a major motion picture."
