It's Weekend Justice: the Internet's #1 audio trainwreck. It's the podcast that was also purchased this week by Disney for $1.45, two bags of Doritos and a half-eaten cinnamon roll. They'll be coming for you next.

Widge's comment that zombies have exploded in popular culture led me to this:
I would like to posit, as much as I don't want to, that the Zombie apocalypse has already happened.
Think about it: At first, there weren't a whole lot. Night of the Living Dead. That was about it. Maybe a couple others. But then slowly, over the last decade or so, because no one stood up to fight the growing hordes, zombies have delved into popular culture, and dug in, and gotten fortified and MULTIPLIED, and while there are still a few hold outs, like me, fighting the fight, just trying to survive in a world gone mad, most of you have embraced and accepted it, leading to the zombie infestation in pop culture that we have today.
