I am sure that some people will take offense. You can please some of the people some of the time all of the people some of the time but never all of the people all of the time.

I would guess that there are a lot of brain injured people who would just have fun "as intended" with the theme and not take it personally. Coming from a family with a disabled member I must say that walking around being politically correct and somber is no better for people than learning that you just step up and laugh when people you like, or know are trying to do something nice for you,trip on something like this.

so now the floons think he invented zombies as well? I though that rip-off of old zombie movies was forgotten years ago. The "Brain Damaged" part I can see is relevent to his floons.
