As most Walking Dead devotees know, a barbed wire wrapped feces-storm has been a brewin’ for the better part of the past 16 episodes of the popular apocalyptic series. Although to be fair, the term hurricane might be a tad more apropos.

If that isn’t exciting enough to prompt a visit to “Pee Pee City”, I don’t know what is.

Mr. Grimes is probably wishing he had brought along that second pair of clean underwear after all.
