    Let’s have some love for the This American Life zombie fic too!

    If you’d like to hear Peter Sagal actually saying “braains,” here’s the “Not my Job” segment they did with George Romero (whose zombies never said that, naturally): http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=114303424

    Absolutely correct, Oscar! Romero’s zombies were never picky about which parts they wanted to eat.

    If I have it right, zombies moaning ‘brains’ was actually pioneered in ‘Return of the Living Dead’, a punk/new wave-era satire written by the late, great Dan O’Bannon.

    It’s also the source of one of the best lines of dialogue in any movie, ever. “Send more cops!”

    The worst is definitely Michael Feldman’s Whad’Ya Know? That show is total garbage, like a low budget/less funny (if possible) Tonight Show

    Kudos for NPR fanfic, but the whole zombie thing is played out.

    I can’t get into this, because it’s my sincere hope that the crew of the worst show on NPR are the first eaten in the zombie apocalypse.

      What do you mean? Certainly there are much worse shows on NPR? I’d hope that “…this is Marketplace from American Public Media…” or Diane Rehm would have their chewy gray matter devoured before Carl Kasell.

      I, for one, welcome our new sarcastic “Wait, Wait” overlords…

      I actually kind of like “Wait Wait”, except when P.J. O’Rourke is a panelist. Then I can’t change the station fast enough.
