A construction company’s slogan leads us to apocalyptic art

I saw this truck yesterday, with their weird approach to selling their construction services: “The World Did Not End! So book your roofing job now.” Then, for curiosity’s sake, I did a Google image search for “how artists portray the end of the world,” and the #1 result was Norman Rockwell’s Thanksgiving Dinner painting, below left … how does that make any sense? I think German painter Hans Memling’s “The Last Judgment” (details, below center and right) is more-appropriate – those people certainly don’t need a new roof!
