Stop! Don’t Eat That Zombie Meat!

While the rest of the geek community is packing up their capes and social anxieties to head to Comic Con, we at remain behind to report on nerd news not happening in San Diego … also, we couldn’t scrape together the funds for tickets and travel without cutting into the money we were saving for Growing Pains: The Complete Series box set (almost there, Carol Seaver, you magnificent, suburban jewel).  Regardless, on to the disturbingly misguided product of the day.

Cashing in on the very real threat of zombies, the trend mongers at Harcos Labratories have just released a line on zombie jerky called “Teriyucky” that will allegedly make you more human than human.  Wait …. what?

From the FAQ’s page of the site: “This jerky used to be a part of a zombie who had green blood flowing through it. Did we also mention that it has a whole 11 grams of protein? That makes it awesome, especially for the body builders on the run. Leave the protein bars at home and bring a bag of this delicious green jerky with you for during your workout routines and zombie hunting expeditions.”

To editorialize, we shouldn’t be teaching our children, or our bodybuilders, that it’s okay to eat zombies, no matter what color blood they have!  That jerky used to be somebody’s grandma!  And now that she’s undead and gross, you want to eat her?  I don’t think the science is quite right either.  It’s like feeding zombie bacon to another pig!

Figure 1.1 (below) clearly outlines the natural order of the food chain.

Our research shows the results of other experiments in eating zombie flesh.  See Figure 1.2 (below).

Where is Our Modern Barney Miller?

The single camera glory that was Barney Miller can probably never be reproduced.  There’s heavy debate in the office whether it should be or not. It was essentially a 22-minute, 3-act play with minimal characters and only one set (after Season One that also featured Barney’s dining room at home).  The thing is, the writing […]

Non-John Hughes High School Movies from the ’80s

Yep. Most of the high school biggies were our man, Hughes. But if you can name the 1980s high school movie quotes listed below, your might have been paying attention to something else in ’88 other than the MTV Beach House and that cute girl with freckles in your 11th grade Chemistry class. 5)”Last night, […]

Mark Your Calendar, Nerds!!!

This Weekend is legendary Indy 500.  Please don’t think geekdom is limited to cosplay and app programming.  Oh no, my friends. Two years ago our Mid-West correspondent, Billy D, and I watched those car dorks jump a humongous Hot Wheels truck  over a bunch of school busses and twice as many drunks while Florence Henderson […]


Attention lonely geeks! “Drunk” is only a superpower at Red Sox games and ex-girlfriends’ weddings.

Gentleman Jim

  • MONDAY – Movies. Their glory and their hilarious tragedy.  

  • TUESDAY – Television.  Our favorite drug; constant and comforting, but often packaged with regret.  

  • WEDNESDAY – Wildcards! Probably a piece of weird fiction in which Spider-Man has to talk down Laura Ingles from making a bad decision.  

  • THURSDAY – Thesis-level Dorkdom. Jargon, geek terms and weird insight explained for the rest of us.  

  • FRIDAY – Fantasy, Sci-fi, and comics.  Like living in your parents’ basement only without the inherent desperation. Well…
