Chris Fowler played a wonderful prank on Kirk Herbstreit tonight, surprising the ESPN analyst with some characters from the Eastern State Penitentiary haunted house during halftime of tonight’s Notre Dame-Temple game. It’s the first time a zombie has been on Saturday Night Football since Eminem’s appearance.
Virus outbreaks are popping up across the country, authorities are scrambling, the news is bleak, and you have no idea what’s going on. There are panicked rumors that zombies are behind the chaos and multiplying at a rapid pace, taking over one neighborhood at a time. Sirens are blaring across the city, the power just…
Things are tense in Alexandria. There's only one person who can keep the group and the Alexandrians from turning on each other, and that's Rick Grimes.

Last year, amidst the chaos of our mid-twenties, we were handed the creative reins to a real cinematic monster: Zombies Vs. Strippers, a low-budget,…
So this is a thing. It's...patriotic?
Zombies took over Petco Park last night, right from the ceremonial first pitch. It was The Walking Dead Night, and it had nothing to do with the Dodgers being in town.
Of all the boogie monsters and creepy creatures in our public consciousness, the zombie is the most metaphorical by virtue of being the most inflexible. All the other monsters are too human: Vampires and werewolves and Frankenstein's monsters—they're all too motivated by reason, by desire, by upward inflections of…

I don't care to fathom much explanation for this. It's weird, and sometimes weird things are best left up to their own interpretations. (But, seriously, anyone heard anything from the Brits lately?)
American international Alejandro Bedoya has been bagging goals for his Swedish team Orebro. He's also importing some American low-culture to Scandinavia. Here he is doing The Bernie, which in case you weren't already aware was inspired by the dead guy in "Weekend at Bernie's" and resembles The Dougie on too much…
