More seriously, USA Today article: Mayans unfazed about the end of the world

Good article, despite the usage of the shibboleth "Mayans". Since the author seems reasonably well informed, I'm guessing it was miscorrected by his editor to confirm to usage in teh innernet memez.

As Louis Maistros summarizes it, the modern Maya think we're idiots about that "end of the world" thing, but are happy to take our tourism money.
