–When the zombies come, how long will it take before the electricity fails?

–This is one of the weirdest things I have ever come across in my entire life (and I grew up in Guernsey) – a screw-in-the-ground casket. (more info here).  This is funny and creepy all at the same time. Then funny. Oh, and back to creepy again.

The Burrito Deluxe Award of the week goes to the New Orleans Saints, and their Super bowl victory.
