Portmanteau of apocalypse and ellipsis.

Specifically, where apocalypse is defined as "any universal or widespread destruction or disaster," and ellipsis is defined as "the omission of a word or phrase necessary for a complete syntactical construction but not necessary for understanding, or an example of such omission."

When these two words activate their Wonder Twin Powers, they take the shape/form of:

The empty feeling experienced when the date of any sort of cataclysmic prophecy finally arrives, and NOTHING HAPPENS.

Much like being on the receiving end of a pregnant pause.
Nobody "survived" Y2K, that B.S. was a total apocalypsis.
