Now that you've been on the Internet for a few hours today, you've probably read about people who correctly predicted the ending of Mad Men. That's pretty impressive, considering the number of theories that have been floating around in recent weeks. Hell, even the cast wasn't sure for a while how the show would end, as Matthew Weiner at one point gave them a script with an alternate ending.
So, in the spirit of alternate endings, here's a roundup of tweets from fans who imagined a different finale. Some of their ideas are totally absurd, while others are more in line with AMC's past efforts or tied specifically to the show. Take a look:

I was right! Don Draper jumps off the roof of the McCann building, lands on a couch and smokes a cigarette. Perfect ending. #MadMenFinale

Alternate ending to Mad Men was Don, Leonard and a couple of those other guys starting the Eagles

Sorry to see Mad Men end, but excited for the spin-off "Better Call Joan".

What's next? Maybe a spinoff? Wichita Nights? Or…Joan Takes Manhattan? Or.. Peggy Girl On Fire. Or…Monsieur Roger de Montreal?

I kind of want to watch the #MadMen spin-off, Better Call Leonard The Sad Fridge Guy.

I would watch a spin off about Don's secretary becoming a flight attendant though

In the Mad Men spinoff, Don brings Betty to Albuquerque for chemotherapy and meets a nice chemistry teacher named Walter. #MadMenFinale

Only acceptable ending to Mad Men would have been Members Only jacket guy shooting Tony

just a terrible and tragic ending to Mad Men, with Don Draper getting drafted by the Oilers
