Shaun of the Dead

Shaun of the Dead: “You’ve Got Red on you.”

Nothing is sacred on this inconsistent farce of a podcast, so Darth and Jason decided to discuss Shaun of the Dead while the world is under quarantine due to the #CoronaVirus.  C’mon … like it isn’t funny to discuss the Cornetto in the chaos of Corona?

Like it or not, your favorite podcasters have to believe that this pandemic will produce something good; rather, a large group of parents will produce their “Coronita” babies in December 2020. On this particular episode, Jason regrets creating a running quarantine gag!  Why, you might ask? He had to put in some effort, and putting in effort is so passé.

In similar fashion, Adam B. makes zero effort to drive to the studio for this episode. Rather, he calls in from his bunker under the protection of his gas mask because he doesn’t love the #Hindsighters like Darth and Jason do. You learn who your real friends are during a quarantine, listeners-turned-viewers. We’re sorry you had to find out this way. Darth and Jason are attempting to recover from this devastating blow amidst the already imposing contagion.

No one handles quarantine claustrophobia quite like a submariner…

Boredom-induced questions abound amidst the #CoronaConfinement:

  1. If you’re not preparing your children (if you’re unfortunate to have them) for the inevitable demise of their friends and upcoming concerts, are you even BEING a responsible parent?
  2. Did Courtney kill Cobain? #Topical
  3. Do generation categories even make sense?
    1. Darth is NEVER revealing Adam’s true age; she’ll die on that hill even after he’s buried under it.
  4. Why hasn’t Bill Nighy been knighted yet?

Ultimately, Darth and Jason realize that everyone is struggling with social distancing. At times like these, it’s important to keep yourself entertained with your favorite music, television shows, and obviously the greatest podcast of all time. And there’s no need to thank us; we’re no heroes. We wear on bras on our heads just like everyone else.

Stay tuned and stay safe during these troubling times, and do your best to stay sane. Special Forces will show up to save us all, eventually. In the meantime, mix yourself a nice quarantini and wait for all this to blow over. 😉

You can take the Oxford Comma from her when you pry it from her cold, dead, and lifeless hands. She also speaks Spanish, unlike Ron Burgundy.
