Last week, the FBI arrested Shannon Richardson, an actress who has played a zombie on AMC's The Walking Dead and also had some bit parts in The Vampire Diaries, a Twilight spinoff (we guess), for sending letters containing risin, a deadly poison, to United States President and Orwellian spymaster Barack Obama, New York City Mayor and soda Nazi Michael Bloomberg, and some other dude. Apparently, she admitted to sending the letters in an attempt to frame her husband, from whom she was separated.
We went out to find a Walking Dead fan to comment on these shocking events, as long as the fan could stop complaining about The Walking Dead.
"Lori was so unlikable on The Walking Dead," our fan told us. "I mean, she was the one telling Rick that he should kill Shane. How could she be mad at him for killing Shane? I'm glad she was killed off."
"And come on, the ending to the last season was weak sauce," he continued. "After all that buildup for The Governor being such a badass, he basically just kills his own guys and rides off into the sunset? No big showdown? No huge prison battle? What the fuck, man?"
Well, yeah, but these are all fictional events on a television show. This other stuff, with the ricin, it really happened. Don't you have anything to...
"And don't even get me started on the warehouse scene with Andrea and the Governor," the fan interrupted. "Why didn't she take the truck? It didn't make any sense!"
Well, it looks like not even a zombie trying to frame her husband for attempting to kill the president can get Walking Dead fans to stop complaining about the show. If convicted, Richardson could face ten years in prison, which is about how long it takes The Walking Dead to wrap up a single plotli... dammit! Now we're doing it too!
The Walking Dead comes back to TV in October.
