#664 - Total Expiration New episodes Monday, Wednesday and Friday
Wednesday, June 16, 2010
TODAY'S NEWS: Perhaps you saw that I was taken to task by the Zombie Rights Campaign for my recent comic hovertext where I said that there was nothing worse than the smell of wet zombie. I'm a little embarrassed that my first reaction was "Hey, it's just a joke! Some of my best friends are Zombies!" While these may be true statements, they are not an excuse for making inaccurate and prejudicial remarks. I'm not an expiration-survivor, so it's not my place to say what is or isn't offensive to the differently metabolized. Going forward, when I receive feedback from anyone that my remarks are biased or discriminatory, I will endeavor to first listen and understand the objections, and not marginalize their concerns.
We at Ask Dr. Eldritch apologize for any hurt feelings, and to set the record straight, there are at least eight things that smell worse than a wet zombie.
On a more cheerful note, Happy Birthday to ZombieGurl TJ, who was featured as today's Easter Egg! (A friend of yours made this possible; perhaps you can guess which one!)
